Take me out and bleed me
As our love burns in effigy.
My head spins, my heart quickens
Chest heavy as the air around me thickens.
I lay here but sleep will not come.
Thoughts of hate and loss and harm to some.
A thief ravages the temple as I seeth helplessly.
The lovers’ silhouette embedded permanently.
The world goes on as I come apart;
Never again to have a place in her heart…
