    Unhappy My last words

    Hello.
    OK, my last words, my last seeing, and talking to you, bye. I never wanna harm you.
    Are these words grammatically fine and natural?
    Bye.

    Re: My last words

    No. Try writing it again starting with "This is the last time I will..." and see how it sounds then.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    OK, this is the last time you will talk to me, listen to me and see me, bye; I never want to harm you.

    But I wanted to add seeing, talking and words.

    This is the last time you'll be talking to me, listening to me or seeing me. Goodbye, I never want to harm you.

    One's "last words" are what they say before they die.
