Darling I think you have

Killed me…

I struggle to wake from the

Dream

And as the moon casts

Shadows

On my bed

I try to swaddle myself

In the night.

The place where you sleep is now

Empty

And I’m bleeding

Like never before.

Somewhere in the house a door creaks

Open;

I imagine that it’s

You

Coming home.

With a knife in your hand

And a smile on your

Face,

I watch the

Blood

Drip from the tip

Into your mouth.

I feel you suck the

Life

Out of me

And I feel you

Feel me.

Pulse slows and you

Leave again…

This time for good.

I wave like a

Waif

And you laugh at

My brittle hands

And my feeble

Questioning

Smile.

I say good bye

For the last time.

I’m free.
