kill me.

entry picture

Pain in my stomach, heart, mind,
stabs of a knife 
I yearn for this piercing pain 
I've lacked it far too long.

Ungrateful love:
Punch me, hurt me, kill me almost.

Almost.

so later
when the rain has ceased
a flower can bloom again
a new blossom
the same plant

Revive me, ungrateful love
Make me another

Kill me.

This feels like a desperate plea from within an abusive relationship.

Anyone who has ever had a partner who has endured such a relationship knows the terrible nature of their enduring fragility, though that in itself is a beautiful thing.

It could also be read as the portrayal of futile hope that exists in such relationships, the hope that the cycle might one day be broken.

Not a superficial poem at all, a very thoughful piece without wasting words.

Very powerful take on 'reincarnation' or simply the idea of 'rebirth' itself. A veritable defender of such a title. Well done on this.👍
