A short short piece written about 11 years ago...

INTO WHITE
 

 
 

I can’t do this any more.  I’m sorry, but I just can’t.  There’s so much stuff going on in my head and you’re not helping.  So I guess I could say this is goodbye.  If you can hear me now, and I know you can, you’ll know I’m laughing.  But the really funny thing is…I don’t know why.
 

 
 

I’ve moved my writing machine into the room where the music is.  Where The Cat is.
 

I guess, like The Cat, I’ve found my peace.
 

 
 

Miles from nowhere, guess I’ll take my time – oh yeah –to reach there.
 

 
 

Why am I always fighting with myself. No question mark because it’s not a question. In fact I already know the answer. The answer lies within.
 

 
 

I took the first little white pill with the last of the rum.  I’m not in any real hurry because I know that when I get there, the sun will be shining for a very long time.  I miss the sun.  Not it’s warmth so much, but its brightness.
 

 
 

Lord my body has been a good friend, but I won’t need it when I reach the end.
 

 
 

I just wanted you to know that you.  Only you.  Have kept me here for so long.  So I’m not sure whether to thank you or curse you.  Sometimes when you’d drag me from the gloom that was my existence, I could almost feel something. The sad part of this whole pathetic thing is I don’t know what. I don’t even know if I’ve ever felt really alive.  But you’d know.  Because you know me better.
 

 
 

Second pill.  No more rum.  Only Two Dogs Fucking.  That’ll have to do.

This is a well written piece. The narrator seems very resigned to the fact that she will be gone. For example, the laughing and finding things funny as she takes the pills. Very compelling read.

i actually dont know what to say about it. but its not action/thriller genre as given in the columns.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 3/14/2007
Dora this is sad and stark but very hard hitting as one contemplates themself in this same positiion for has one really lived a lifetime without at one time in it contemplating death. Suicide is the end result of despair, and the worst despair of all is the loss of love...sad but true.
