From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

You were not fucking civil.

Your hands are the unclean ones,

I washed the poison off of mine when I told you we could be no longer.

I told you.

Yet you keep writing about me.

Talking about me.

I tried to be fucking civil.

Under love's heavy burden do I sink.

I will not sink.

You are the one holding the anchor.

Yet you blame me for drowning.  

This was a love I prayed on for two years of my life, 

and if you with patient ears attend,

the love I will never again try to mend.
