    If

    if somebody loved me
    i know i would not cling to You
    so unrelentingly
    as these, the writhing limbs of the cursed,
    tighten their grip
    constricting wrathfully 'round my ankles
    dragging me off with them
    to eternal hellfire and damnation.

    if somebody loved me
    i know i would not clutch so desperately
    onto Your shoestrings
    fraying threads
    dangling me over this wailing bottomless pit
    sucking me forcefully into its whirl of eternally lost souls.

    if somebody loved me
    i know i would not grasp so frantically at Your heels
    in futile attempts to save myself
    from the fright of my living death
    as i sink into my inescapable oblivion
    momentarily pulling You with me
    down beneath the line of sanity.

    if somebody loved me
    i could release my bleeding fists
    too severely rapt in anguish
    freeing You
    laying to rest at long last
    my abused heart
    in a healing
    bed of love

    if.


    Let me die now...
