Summary: A poem expressing unexpressed rage


I want you to hurt

I want you to bleed

I want you to suffer!

But you have denied me

As I have denied myself the pleasure

Of hearing your screams of anguish

My hands slicked in your blood

But was it human kindness that stayed my blade?

No.

Mercy?

NO.

Forgiveness?

HELL NO!!!

I never forgive and I never forget

Ever

My own cowardice has denied me

Fear of reprisal has stilled if not quenched my rage

See, I’m not so far gone yet, am I?

The punishment bothers me more than the crime.

I’m not so far gone, am I?

Am I?

Revenge.

Justice.

These things will never be mine.

But I can laugh.

I can sing.

I can and sometimes do cry, though not very often

I can and WILL dance on the freshly turned dirt of your grave

If not today, then tomorrow or the next day…

Another day…

Someday…

So let’s drink a toast to Death together

You and I

For Death WILL come

Like a thief in the night

Wrapped in the cloak of oblivion

Forever and Always

Amen




Cheers!
