Unattending, not daring to offend,

I stand before the gaping hole gazing in.

Looking down as you did to me in life,

I feel not a second of remorse or strife.

As empty words of heaven are spoken,

a mind filled with bitter memory doesn't hear,

what cannot be broken brings silence to my ears.

As the oblong box is finally lowered into the dirt,

I turn to move forward in better world without you.

Smiling, I leave fury and hate to rot with your body,

willing the worms as they feed a hearty appitite.
