     Eternal Slumber

     My face is hot
     My hands are cold
     My heart it races
     My mind it slows
    
     I grab the knife
     My grip is tight
     In one swift move
     Iíll see the light

     To leave this wicked world of lies
     To rest in peace and hear no cries

     If I was more gullible and naive
     Then maybe this world, Iíd choose not to leave

     Iíve seen too much in these years past
     Eternal slumber Iíll find at last

     The cut is made
     The blood it flows....

     My face is cold
     My hands are froze
     My mind it races
     My heart it slows

     I grab the bible
     My grip is tight
     Though without faith
     I have no might

     All my questions will be answered tonight....

The last line equals - intrigue, extreme. Interesting read.

If nothing is something
then everything is
our thoughts and feelings
and all that exists.

I like the way you put the words together, but i find the subject very sad. i've had a few moments where i wanted to end it all too, but  I hope you know it's not the answer. Jesus Loves you hun. God Bless.
