Stay

i meant it

i meant it all


that i despised all of what she was made of

skin and bones


that the fire that was once alive

kept me warm

now leaving me cold


that the connection that was once strong

has weakened


erase her


silence occupied the room like lightning

she had shut the door behind her


isn't this what you wanted?

your words to wound her

your screams to expose her demons

your cries to send her guilt


so you meant it? you meant it all?

oh honey at least you thought you did
