Not to immortalize her memory
But to forget her very existence,
He confronted every fragment she left
Of a supposed happily-ever-after,
Because who cares what happens after
The last act of a chronicle?
We all stopped reading at “The End”,
While he began to struggle
Underneath the love she rained over him.
Because deep down he knew
The darkness has to leave for the sun to rise.
And she had ceased to levitate.
So he fabricated lies and annihilated
Her entire world,
Imprinted nostalgia and animosity
On the world they had assembled together.
When he crept out from beneath the sheets
And stumbled towards the windowpane,
He saw a sunrise he had never seen before,
A sunrise that didn’t exist.
