Open Your Doors For Me

I'm at death's door, but theres no answer,
I'm asking to leave this world a little faster.
I knock harder, I knock louder; still no reply.
Why's it disapproved for me to die?
I'm dead inside anyway!
Yet in this world I must stay!
It's not luck, it's not destiny nor is it fate,
The devil just enjoys making me wait!

If I met him half way, would he let me in?
Or would I have to commit yet another sin?
I'm unsure of whether there is a heaven and hell
but to find out, my empty soul i'm willing to sell.
I know i'll find out some day, but that days too far away,
What do I have to do to 'naturally' die? Ironically pray?

i like it, but it seems a bit shallow. it might need more depth. actually, it's nearly perfect. forget my last sentence.
Love the final line, very different take on 'suicidal' thoughts. A well-written and effective piece of poetry. L&T
