Repression is unhealthy they say, and so I’ll lie you to rest instead.
Today I will do away with you.
Today your breath will stop.
No longer will you quicken my heartbeat; no longer will your toxin pulse through.
Today will be the death of her, and you.
The man that wasn’t you,
I will kill you both in memory.
The last time I saw you, I let you destroy me.
This time it is you who will burn to ashes, to dust.
I will cremate you because I want to live,
And we three cannot coincide together.
The flames are smoldering,
And this new love is arising,
Forever, shall you rest in peace.
