i can't believe i'm still around.
i'm pretty sure you don't need me here anymore.
but we're watching tv programs with the lights off.

is it toxic if i'm self assured,
that leaving me will happen when you're bored?
is acceptance still a stage of grief?
because it's getting really hard to breathe.

an emotional asthmatic person in your room
his inhaler helps by saving you.
if he panics, grab his arms and scream
by passing out, he'll finally get some sleep.

if he panics, grab his face and yell,
by passing out, he'll finally get some help.
