The Unknown Citizen (Contributor)

I remember waiting for you

and how time waited too

but red lips and paperwork

stole the world from you

a she devil whose death

was the fuel of my fantasies

how hatred got me through

the words that would’ve killed me

yet her words too

went from kindness to ice

and how I could never forget the price

but I forgive you

because I forgave me

I have burned hatred

and grown love

your place has been taken

I love you father, but

your name is empty

and your wings burnt

may you fly again

but never for me

the replacements arrived

and I am gone
