    you became infatuated with an extraneous appendage of the whole
    and left me faltering
    believing that this was redemptory
    but it was your own guilt that voraciously carved my mind
    a penance so welcome I finally felt a soul
    burgeoning within me

    it was over, as soon as the primordial lust for survival left our spirits neglected:

    why must I be confined to these revolting organs?
    they churn and mute the objects of my affection
    the eyes tint the world gray
    and beckon me away
    to my reclusive sea

    I allow the parasitic visions to split me;
    the duality smacking as a set of lips settling
    on an unwelcome phrase
    shearing your skin with precision;
    a reluctant insult fearing collision

    we ended the moment I moved and:

    the apologies drip from me like nervous condensation
    and into your river flows my desired reconciliation
    but you flow past and wither
    because you forgot to look back

    I demand my own erosion
    so that you may gag on my putrified love
    and bathe in the stench of my demise

    your lungs await the ashes
    of me, of you; of the pieces you left within me

    someday you'll ask yourself
    why you feel a nameless oppressive yearning
    your sanity leeching into a barren, apathetic populace
    and you will realize
    I am gone.

    You are amazing, Frey. I'm quite speechless.

    I believe in you.
