down to hell
across abandoned and devastated fields.
You left me alone! You left me to die!
I do not accept it!
Fuck your time and what it heals!
You wrecked me beyond recognition.
There’s nothing to save! You hear me –
What this little girl was born with – burned;
In lies; in dirt – stomped and trapped
Look me in the eye
This is your handy-work; proudest creation –
Don’t you like me?
I like me. I love me.
I have nothing else to love…
It wished deliriously to hate you
But I’m disgustingly above
Any. Every. No one.
I’ve decided. I’ve decided.
Yet it flickers
painting the house and the tree
I swore! I swore to let it be…
The heart contains – protects
The glimmering hope.
