I feel your arms around me;
They choke me with vise-like ferocity.
I wrest my wrists in shackles I can’t resist,
Bleeding beyond the bone; I bite the pain.
Though leagues of time have passed between us,
I still feel you near. How? I do not know. But
I can see your face as clear as day;
See the malevolence, see the debauchery, see the end.
The end of an abject existence.
As I crawl through the muck and mire that is my life.
I find nothing, but you. Poisoning my mind.
Haunting my every step.
Noose dances around my neck then pulls me up
As I gently sway from side to side.
I see the barrel pointed at my face and the trigger’s pulled
And I fall down into a bed of stars.
There, you sleep right next to me
And I feel a breath of foul things whispered into my ear.
Things I never knew, nor wished to know.
I scream for death to take me on swift wings;
To an end that meets no beginning.
Free from Life’s curse of living in yesterday.
Freed from my memory.
