Exit Sign

As days go by,
And the pain gets worse,
I long to ride,
In my hearse

That "Exit Sign"
Above the door,
Calls to me,
Like never before...

I'm not a coward,
I'm not a fool,
But living with pain
Breaks the rule...

I hold back, 
in fear of God,
And, I guess,
that's kind of odd,

Yet constant pain,
Just gnaws away
Makes me wish
Today's my final day...

And effects on loved ones,
Escapes me not,
To make them sad
Not a desire I've got

But pounding, twisting
Endless agony
Makes me wonder
How much more for me

That "Exit Sign"
Above the door,
Entices me,
Promising no more

Writhing pain,
Pulsating misery,
So very tempting,
Believe you, me...

Homebound,
Largely bedridden
The meaning of my life,
Seems so well hidden

To die alone,
And in pain,
My destiny,
A life in vain.
