To Fire and Forget

To kill a stranger should be easy,

Like being wooed, in a hotel that’s sleazy.

 

As you win her heart and win her soul,

She will stay with you and enter your mind,

Even when you’re old.



She consumed your life, a thought impossible to leave.

This would never have happened if you hadn’t been so naïve.

 

You’re stuck with her forever and always.

But forever and always the heart betrays.

 

Because you did what you thought, at the time, was right.

And that thought creeps up on you

Every

Single

Night.

 

To kill a stranger should be easy.

You take his heart, you take his soul.

He’s consumed your life.

You’re stuck with it forever.

You did what you thought was right.

But it haunts you

Every

Single

Night.
