I Lied, Deathra | Poem

I lied, Deathra,

To forget you for a while,

For a smoke in guilt,

And, still,

I can’t forget you.

You’re paining me,

No time; no place; no space,

I lied, Deathra,

To forget you for a while.

Past gallows returning,

Playing edges;

Of numbness and sensitiveness,

I lied, Deathra,

To forget you for a while,

And, still,

You’re paining me.

Embrace me or leave me?

You’re my mistress, Deathra,

I’m your master,

Obey me!

Don’t command me!

Don’t think weak!

Don’t think strong!

We’re one,

Death’s cacophony.

I lied, Deathra,

To forget you for a while,

For a smoke in guilt,

And, still,

I can’t forget you.
