I hope that you die





I hope that our few remaining friends
Give up on trying to save us
I hope we come out with a fail-safe plot
To piss off the dumb few that forgave us

I hope the fences we mended
Fall down beneath their own weight
And I hope we hang on past the last exit
I hope it's already too late

And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here
Someday burns down
And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away
And I never come back to this town again in my life

I hope I lie
And tell everyone you were a good wife
And I hope you die
I hope we both die

I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow
I hope it bleeds all day long
Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises
We're pretty sure they're all wrong

I hope it stays dark forever
I hope the worst isn't over
And I hope you blink before I do
And I hope I never get sober

And I hope when you think of me years down the line
You can't find one good thing to say
And I'd hope that if I found the strength to walk out
You'd stay the hell out of my way

I am drowning
There is no sign of land
You are coming down with me
Hand in unlovable hand

And I hope you die
I hope we both die

Equal parts funny and sad...sad because lotsa people have been there.

Everyone dies, silly! At least we can all count on something.

Definitely sounds like a guy in an utterly miserable relationship splitting up. It stinks. :( I keep running into young people who have married and divorced three and four times. It blows my mind. I understand divorce don't get me wrong but when the numbers start racking up that high you know something is really wrong.

I get down on bended knee everyday and thank the lord I didn't knock my first wife up.
We had a Corgi and I wanted to bring it over to play with my soon to be step kids and she turned that into a huge hassle. I would have ended up killing her if she turned our kids into tug-of-war fodder. That why when she found a doctor that would give a guy my age the snip thirty-ish I jumped on it with both feet. The procedure not the plumbing M-fan I have to watch what I say when there is a crazy Canadian our midst. In the long run I would have liked to have a child......just not with her. Thinking about her makes me think of a phrase we used to use. Mamma's baby daddy's maybe.
