Requiem for a Marriage Pt. 1: A Selection of Poems
Like a secret organisation you infiltrated my mind Nestling into my darkest crevices You’re hurting me but your presence is my life support Your tentacles are choking me from behind my eyes Clouding my vision with guilty ink Still I smile and wear your heart on my sleeve Even in death you’ll swim towards me Seeping through wood and varnish like saliva Robbed of rest but not of eternal peace. I couldn’t be happier Unless you decide to leave
