Five years
Shackled to
a chamber

Those cindered eyes defy attempts at language
Aiming to tie together loose ends
That are forgotten and demolished

He loved me
Up until he stopped sleeping
and breathing
He loves me now
and is finally free

In miserable pasts and futures
A single strand is comfortably placed
In a red lined notebook that's stained with neglect
Remembrance is the last key to sanity

He was proud of me
He’s a skeleton
He was happy to see me
He’s dirt, he’s earth

Sanity is the last thing blocking enlightenment
Vowels don't always project
Souls can't always coalesce
Understanding is veiled
In consonants and euphemisms
Suffocating memories and repressed desires
For these words to reach those ears
Is the final act and last request
Of a decaying figure gorging itself on false pride and philosophies

Monsters will be monsters
