You may flip through the thesaurus,
Searching the pages for evidence,
Of synonyms for my sins,
Feelings that came
Cases to be
I deaded him, abandoned the boy,
Murdered at night, and let the man be born,
Snow fell to wake anew in the morning,
Mourning over desire no more.
Death arrived on
a winter day,
A distinguished existence,
That was meant,
To extinguish – or to be? No,
to be no more.
