A love kill
I cell phone him from across town
my 'lover' with his growing impatience.
In the background, I can make out the sound of his fingers
tapping on a nearby hard surface ( like the last time I phoned! )
and at that point, I thought OH! THAT'S IT!
after all, I have loved him for too long anyway
remembering how he craftily gatecrashed my life all those years ago
and that I, like a naive child had allowed him to nearly bleed it to death
without him any intention of changing my surname to his-the ring dodging bastard!
It is now a new resolve comes to mind
I must dredge myself from this deadened relationship I've been sousing in
the flames of my duped adorations must be extinguished!
with that, I'm suddenly impacted by so many fresh possibilities
pouring into my thoughts with the clarity of a mountain stream
and hope for a new future I had only dared half glimpse
attaches itself to my whole being
as if it were some upgraded App entitled-FREEDOM!
