Bye ()

… And just like that

It ended.

*

Addicted, she was

To balancing the hearts of men

Pushed her luck

Off a cliff, attempting to unearth

A combination

From her many slaves

That could equate to the weight of mine.

*

… Ambitious …

For I am not just a man

Hieroglyphics from doors long sealed hide

The key to that which defines

Me… purge the thought of witnessing

My reflection in the mirror

For there is not more than one me.

*

Consider this an exorcism

Of all I restrained,

As I waved good-bye.

Reverse fragmentation.

Shattered to be rebuilt again

Pick the fragments of debris

Salvage what remains

But never, leave the pieces

They are who you are

 

Every end signals a new beginning

If they tell you, “you can’t do it”

Laugh

It just means there’s one more person

To surprise

Keep it cool as ice

If finishing the pie is a victory

Don’t settle for a slice.
