18 seconds

You see that I’m dying.
Poison is eating every part of my body.
My eyes are black, my bones are turning inside out!
Shutting your ears won’t save you from hearing my voice in your head.
You feel the darkness.
Black clouds have shadowed every part of my mind.
My heart is black, my teeth are rotting one by one!
Let me drink the poison and I promise, I won’t haunt you in your dreams.

Now count 18 seconds and sleep …
