You and I

You indulged me with your filthy deceits You anointed me with a coronal of false assurances You took me by the hand and guided me to a land of falsehoods And I was a complete fool for you I swear by the sun and the moon, And each of the stars scorching and fading in galaxies away, That I will never illustrate my palpable love for you again I will not yearn for you, for you have forgotten me The love in my heart is extinguished Though my heart beats relentless like a war drum The gardens you tended in my mind Now wither and choke from poisonous ash flung From the den of shadows that is my soul I will not call for you I will torch every bridge you have ever stepped foot on I will tear the pages that invoke your name from my book of life I will erase any lingering nostalgia of your adoration I will unmoor my soul from the shores of your callous considerations I will inter my longing for you in a grave soon encumbered by the weeds of time Should I conjure your ghost one day I will promptly snuff that redolent manifestation For I have torn out my anguished heart And sown it in fertile, healing soils
