Final Sentence

Empty collapsed desks,
Burning bludgeoned mess
Silent destructive being
Lying, killing, scheming
Reacting to the loss
Activating last mechanism
A churning overflowed pot
The known suicidal ideation
Genetic-environmental creation
Inhalations and exhalations
The mollifying explications
Nullifying emotional lies
Dying with great bursts
A million great piles
A million bloody hurts
Now I have nothing to work
This is my final sentence.
