I wanted to be there when you were destroyed, to bathe in the river of your tears

To rub salt meticulously into each and every one of your open wounds, and watch you burn

 

I wanted to be the very last straw laid upon your broken back

The very last vision you saw before oblivion snatched you away

 

Perhaps my greed is what robbed my revenge of the sweet taste of satisfaction

 

I wanted so much to be your end; as I could no longer be your all

 

It was never enough for me to let you alone in your folly

 

I simply had to throw it all back in your face

 

Your anxiety was toxic to me, a prominent drug, addictive, severe

 

Every tear you shed seeped through my chest, and like acid, dissolved a piece of myself

 

Too late did I realize, in breaking you down

I’d only succeeded in crushing my heart
