My Dearest Ema

My dearest Ema,

I’ve shortened your name
but I won’t apologize

even in written form you still manage to make my skin quiver and raspy

Oh Ema,
how I long for your goodbye

I’ve dealt with your irritating subtleties much too long

meds keep me sane no more
and the smother of an omnipotent lover
none should ponder

your crimson inducing breaks, too unbearable,
would happen to me of all people

I’m the lucky one I guess

posed with this challenge
to live with an insatiable pest
who’s physical abuse is evidence of unrest

who’s unceasingly vile and hungry appetite
scorns till skin deep
only to regurgitate any sense of purity
leaving behind a slaughterhouse of pain
short of perverse
which might have soothed me

DAMN YOU

my mute agony would suffice no longer

I HATE YOU

YES

I

DO

SINCERELY AND PASSIONATELY

all the while
I appreciate your candor
but I’m not impressed, never was actually

for when I pass
who will host your shenanigans

for my soul is immortal
and you know no soul

it was all for nothing

and so there comes a point
one is best off among enemies
because there are no gimmicks
because a snake is a snake is a snake
make no mistake

and now, with our relationship at stake
let me wake
with a clean slate
as if
you were gone
