I really enjoyed this piece... take a look at the poem I wrote called - Waking up Again. It's in this forum, you might enjoy it, it reminds me a lot of the poem you have here.
"I only wish
That I would die
So as not to face
This is a very powerful line, no doubt my favorite... we all want to be released... but how do we know if what's on the other side is any better? How do we know that there's anything at all? I personally have hope there's something better (nothing can be worse than this, right?), and I guess this is called Hope... and it's this same feeling (hope) which keeps a lot of us here in this earth...
Sorry for the long reply... I really enjoyed your work and look forward to reading more of you...
