To die

There's no use sending them away
They'll just be back some day
Maybe they'll kill me
No that would be too nice of them
Don't try all that junk with me
Why don't you just let me be
Cause I obviously am
Just a waste of space and time
No it won't just go away
Someone will always see
This worthless child in me
Exploit it till I cry
Show me up till I just want to die
Just let me try
To die.

Comments on Maybe apply. I never was quite this suicidal really; I mean, I did feel this way, but I didn't really want to *die*, I just wanted to be left alone, wished that people would stop wasting their time on me, and that was the only way I could see of achieving that - but I never actually planned to kill myself, I just wanted to fade away.
