Suicidal

I heaved
I panted
I took a deep breath
I waited

It was time
I had finally decided
It was today

As I fixed the knot on the ceiling
As I looked at the medicine bottle
As I considered the knife in front of me

All my thought was
I need to sleep
Sleep and never wake up

I heard the a radio jingle
There was a song
It said hold on a little longer

Maybe this is my salvation
Maybe it's all in my head
But when this thought comes again
I will remember that little song
Hold on a little longer.
