hold my body underwater, wait until my breathing stops -
count to 20 in your head then kill a cat to wake me up.
document the first word that i speak,
ask what i want then record my response.
make a note of the first thing that i ask - when i'm lucid ask me what i meant.
shove my head back underwater; watch me writhe and gasp for air -
focus on the frighten in my eyes and watch it turn into a glassy stare.
make a mental note of how you're feeling - with me laying lifeless on the bathroom floor.
shake my shoulders, slap my face, breathe deep - resuscitate,
ask me "where did you go?" ask me "what's it all for?"
what's it all for? is there any point at all? is there really a god?
