Array ( [sid] => 181555 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => They Way I'd Go [time] => 2015-08-12 19:28:33 [hometext] => Oh the thoughts in my head... sometimes I wish I would just go away [bodytext] => I had a dream today
That I would fade away
Not for a short while
But for the rest of all my days

Ive thought about it a lot
So many different ways
But what one should i pick?
The choices are all in a haze

I could do it old fashioned
and hang myself from a tree
I could do it new age style
And possibly just O.D.

Those aren't the only ways to achieve it
I still have some up my sleeve
Like one gun and one bullet
It's sure to bring me to my knees

Then again poisoning is always an option
A little cyanide in my tea
Or maybe I could mix a drink
One with radiator fluid indeed

Of course there is always self infliction
Thats a sure way I can see
Although I think that option's out
I couldn't bare to just sit and bleed

There is always carbon monoxide
That would surely do the trick
Come to think of it though
It probably wouldn't stick

I could climb upon a bridge and jump
Fall straight down to my doom
But it would be a bloody mess
And no body for a tomb

There is still some more that comes to mind
Each and every day
Stick around for a little more
Please don't go away

Theres the option of vehicular impact
I think of that the most
Walk out in-front of a semi-truck
I'd surely be a ghost

But what about the pesticide option?
That would surely work
I may end up with that one
Smiling with a smirk

I don't believe these would be my ways
Although every option seems complete
I just can't imagine my kids waking up
Finding me dead somewhere on the street

Now the way that I would do it
Is much more subtle, I must say
It would be a way no one would find me
Even if searching all of their days

I would pick a beautiful day
When the Sun was blistering hot
I'd take a stroll along the beach
Caring what people thought i would not

Assuming the water was calm
I would start to swim afar
I dream I would swim with Dolphins
Maybe even see a salt water Gar

I'd keep swimming and swimming as long as i could
Every now and then looking back
Terrified I would be for sure
Of a possible shark attack

By now my arms are tired
Im starting to slow down
My legs will soon expire
And then I'll surely drown

So here lies Dave Asdney
At the bottom of the sea
I'm never coming back to them
Though everyone's on their knees

Praying for my safe return
Although they do not know
That there is no reason to be concerned
This is how I preferred to go

They Way I'd Go

Its strange to hear such a casual and indifferent approach to such a dark topic, but its such a brilliant poem, particularly the 'new age style' line

eerily familiar...i shudder to realize my early writing rang the same as this...perish the thought and rise...things are never the same as this and never worth so much as a life

I don/'/t even think words are possible to do justice to what you wrote. This is such a great write and really hit a chord. Thank you so much for sharing this.
