incendium – a poem

a soulless regress
i’ve been laid to waste
alone in solace
your sins erased
i picture a reel
bloodless repose
melting frames
overexposed
the moon is a lie
the sun does the same
the stars are aligned
but don’t remember
your name

i’m not right again
left behind again
as you melt around me

one more chance
one last time
a fatal mistake
the doorbell chimes
blood on my hands
the stain’s on your soul
a mound of remorse
in god’s cereal bowl
i needed you then
you needed me now
a soulless regress
and a murder
most foul

i’m not right again
left behind again
as you softly whisper

incendium
maleficium
spiritus
sanctum

and you melt
around me
