I have ten seconds of happiness
And I hope I don't spend it all in utter craziness.
I have nine seconds of being sane
And then it will all result in pain.
I have eight seconds till it fades away
Then I'll wish that I begged it to stay.
I have seven seconds to say goodbye
Then the misery will engulf me till I cry.
I have six seconds to say a prayer
And hope to be forgiven, because it's only fair.
I have five seconds to suck in my breath
And wish for a quick and painless death.
I have four seconds to remember everything
From love to hate, from give to take.
I have three seconds to widen my eyes
And stare at the ceiling in fake surprise.
I have two seconds to bite my lip once more
And listen to my heart beat like a knock at the door.
I have one second to open my mouth and scream
Then maybe I will awake from this horrid dream.
