The Breaking Point 

Although we disagree,

No one deserves this.

Perhaps I can learn to love like you,

Siphoning energy from others

While leaving my own heart unscathed.

You are a leper sitting across from me at the last supper.

Arcane retribution sought out for without hope,

Entwined in this guilt that was never even mine to bare

While enduring brief intervals of horrible sanity.

Heavy is the head that wears the crown;

I’m filled with helium,

Weightlessness trespassing through the resistance of the hourglass,

Perpetual ambivalence is my only escape

Because despite everything,

I refuse to be the Reaper’s bride before I have gotten to know him better.

Push me past the breaking point,

Take me home,

My love…
