Poem for Disintegration from CM Punk’s “Pipebomb” by Josh Shepard

“I’m the best in the world.”

-CM Punk to John Cena, June 27, 2011

I want you to listen to me.

I want you to leave.

I want to hate you. (I don’t.)

I hate that I’m splitting.

I’m going completely imaginary.

the only thing that’s real is this sick.

let me part. leaving isn’t lazy.

(hell knows.) maybe leaving

is just like rest. (microphone is cut off.)
