I did it,
yes
no one but me,
I
put the noose around my neck
voluntarily
I might add,
shook my head no
at the request for a blindfold
and yes
I did this deed with my eyes wide open,
and
seemingly in my right mind,
with
my underlying raging need for self destruction
as the only possible suspect
to blame
and now...
I wait for the platform to drop
and my life to end.



 remember this...nobody has an unbreakable heart

WoW, this is deep and powerful!

I enjoyed this. The way you wrote it, it sorta hands down like the long end of a rope -- which is fitting. And the title pretty much sums up a whole mess of situations like that; luckily, not all of them are fatal.  

Keep writing!

WOW!  What a great thing to read this morning...and to hope that that's exactly how my ex-hubby will feel one day.  Very soothing to my soul to imagine the day!  HAHAHA!

I'm torn between disappointment that this wasn't a new one (*G*... hint, hint) and delight that one posted while I was vacationing has been brought back up so that I can echo here what I told you in email several weeks ago... *S*

But all my ponderings of how often we put the noose around our own necks and cause our own destruction vanished upon reading Toerag's suggestion for the rope. LOL.

Now I'll admit his idea is MUCH better... but I'll also remind you that I have my baseball bat handy! LOL.

Don't self-destruct, Lovey. You are too important to too many people. No noose is good news!!!
