My Love Did Not Die... (I killed it!)

by Westley Nash

You're right, my love for you did not die...

I killed it!

There's a difference...

You may have been the one to leave,

evaporating into the open air like steam,

but my heart held on to you regardless.

It would not relent.

Just would not let you go!

It simply refused to let me to move on and so I had no choice but to put the poor thing out of its misery;

to show it the mercy that you never did!

So now you come to me, revisiting my world like a traumatic memory,

defending your actions by using words like suffering, pain and hurt;

as if you know anything about such things!

You weren't there!

You didn't have to watch it struggle to breathe!

You didn't have to hear it cry out in frantic terror,

clinging on in desperation for every last agonising second,

right up to its pitiful end!

You didn't have to watch the beauty and the passion and the hope drain from its wide innocent eyes,

to be replaced by a cold dead nothingness!

And you did not have to bury it in the frozen earth

before walking from its unmarked grave a broken, lifeless shell.

So yes, you're right, my love for you did not die...

I killed it!

There's a difference...
