self indulgence

i am going to vanish away now


i just did it


on a technicality


i am going to disappear

i have disappeared

i have autosuggested my way into heaven

“i am in heaven”

“everything is OK and good”

“life is not a bad place i am not a bad person”


i am going to die now

i have just died

i exist no longer

i am resting in peace


say goodnight to me


i am coming back

i am now here again, hello

an accurate appraisal of my life involves

staring at my face to search for signs

of the true thoughts about

my personhood


i am woefully frustrated

i’m dying now
