Hang Me, Dear Darling

Hang Me, Dear Darling

A Poem by Manuel A Hurtado

A poem.

Hang Me, Dear Darling

Hang me, dear darling.
Hang me, and kick in my head.
Kick it in and smash it to pulp.

Drown me, dear darling.
Drown me, and sink my body.
Sink me until I won't be found again.

Rid me, dear darling.
Rid me, and make it all go away.
Rid me of diagnosticians and psychiatrists.

Drug me, dear darling.
Drug me, and make me lose it.
Drug me until I can't help but curl up and cry.

Lithium, dear darling.
Lithium, it's a wall.
Lithium is the wall separating my hands from your throat.

Darling, dear darling.
Darling, you piece of everything, you.
Darling, you made me whole enough to end.

-Manuel A. Hurtado
