My burden is lifted,

I return your gift,

Along with all the shining pebbles

that through the filth

I had to sift.

No more condescension,

no more apprehension.

The end is far kinder

than your cruel deception,

your arrogant desires,

pointless musings.

You have fooled yourself 

and me.

The cat has fallen from her tree.

No more childish games to play

where every day things quickly change.

No more forgiveness,

just a bloody ax.

For every single silly lie

there’s a brutal tax.

Kindness turns to madness,

there is no room for sadness.

no longer fond of you

and all the damage you attempt to do;

Your careless manner

cannot see you through.

Every tear, and every dream,

and every casualty,

all revealed in worthless words

and false identities.

Just erotic fodder

for those u wish to please.

I no longer hunger

for empty sullen passion,

or vague promises 

of a love everlasting.

There is no pain,

no shining glory-

just a flimsy tattered end

to this pathetic story.
