My Last Day
G N

last day

well this is it
iím going do it this time
threatened often in the past
but this time its for real

all of the arguing and fighting
and the fierce blows all come down to this
why wouldnít you listen
to the way i felt.

i tried to tell you
time and time again
could it end any other way
who knows, but it wont

i have it all planned out,

first iím going to dig up my money
which is buried under the shed
my daddy taught me that trick
he said you couldnít trust banks

then,

im going to get a can
and put gasoline in it
iíll fill it to the top
careful now i have to have it all

next,

where is my gun?
ah, here it is, under the bed
wipe off the dust
and get the shells

ok, now for the fun to begin

iíll splash a little gasoline in this corner of the house
where you kept those silly dolls
you always treated them like gold
i hated them

make a trail with the gasoline
into the kitchen
up onto the stove
where you always burnt my bread

i have the jar of money
that i dug up in the shed
iíll spread a few andrew jacksons around on the floor
and maybe a couple of ben franklins too

into the bathroom with my can and jar
dozens of ben franklins swimming in the tub
douse a lot of gasoline in the toilet area
it always smelled of shit anyway

trailing with the gasoline can
i reach the bedroom
for most people it is a place of rest
but for me it was a place of torture

you slept on your bed
and i on mine
we didnít have to do that you know
we could have been close

i retrace my steps through the house
spreading money and gasoline
where at one time happiness and meaning converged
but all that is gone now

the can of gasoline is empty and so is the jar of money

slowly i walk to the back room
and sit on the bed
the house is so quiet
in a few more moments i will be gone

i hold the gun in my hand
and put in a fresh shell
snapping the safety off
i feel like my heart is going to leave my chest

i have a book of matches
the ones from a local hardware store
on them is a warning of danger
yeah right

trembling i strike one
it lights
and i drop it to the floor
it goes out before it can reach the fuel

the second match will be the one
i make sure of that
the trembling is gone
now iím just pissed

i drop the match and the flame is intense
it races through the house and back again
the walls that i soaked are roaring in flames
and my hands are trembling again

i take the gun
and place the barrel to my chest
my finger tightens around the trigger
as the heat from the fire grows

pulling the trigger i feel the shock
and fall back onto the bed
staring at the ceiling
it is covered in thick black smoke

turning my head i look out the window
i scream out your name
come save me
but it is to late

my eyes close in death
here they will find me
the bitter end
of a bitter life
