amo / malamo, la sekvo

published: 1-19-2020

 

I woke up holding everything that burns me alive
head pounding from the kerosene

and I'm choking on the words that I never said
because your place should have been right next to me

it's okay for you to say my name
there's no need to run anymore
here is where you will spend the rest of your days
hiding from the painful truth, trembling as if a monster's roar

do you still remember the look in her eyes
when you left everything behind?

don't tell me you still expect her lips to plead
because you sealed them for eternity

autumn leaves will cover your grave
where children sleep and ghosts come to play
maybe we'll meet on the other side of the veil
maybe someday
