Once Loved; Twice Stabbed

Your arrival funfare
Showed a light in my dark tunnel
Your smile melted my heart
Your wit showed you’re from
Solomon’s loin…

Sworn foes were our parents
Next rated Romeo and Juliet
I thought we’d always be
Though not to the point of death
I gave my all…

When it climaxed
After we took to our heels
Away from our origins
Your words began to pierce me

A child’s play I thought at first
Until my picked up life with you
Fell and shattered with a loud roar
Breath ceased existing
As I watched you walk away
With the half I gave you
While the one with me you
Stabbed so strongly
Like a butchered game in an abattoir

As I exit this world
Love do I declare an infidel
Farewell…
