Deleting myself

Such an attractive prospect

A new beginning

It would be so easy to ease your pain

No medicine is required

Just modest a word

A word like


Would do

Yet I fear this word

For it is a stopper that stopped

The expression of your outrage flowing

As it did once before upon me

The diversion of you

By this word



Banished you

Such a simple word

Am I beyond the salvation of words?

For the wounds inflicted

Are likely incurable

The denial of



Was pitiless

Yet if we were to speak

Would your old words pollute me still?

Reading the tea leaves,

indisputable message.

Time to wash my cup.

I should let you go.

For you, love has no purpose.

 Its loss will teach you.

Restructure the world.

Turn over an ancient rock.

Sculpt new beginnings.

Beneath summer sky.

My soul rejuvenated.  

Too long in darkness.
