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?
I never forgive and I never forget
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?
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…
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
