I agree, Burzum, but don't you think that there is a difference between taking one's life because of despair, craziness, etc., and realizing that the quality of life has deteriorated to such a point that a person may as well be dead, even if that person is yourself? My husband and I had a conversation about this just last night; we agreed that the one would help the other, should one of us pass a certain point, but what about someone who is alone? I would consider a suicide under those conditions a "death with dignity." What about you?
Let me guide myself with the blue, forked torch of this flower
down the darker and darker stairs where blue is darkened on blueness
even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September
to the sightless realm where darkness was awake upon the dark
