So Vicious

Thomasine Dye


Things are coming to a close

Ending before they began

I have fought it for years now

Doing the best that I can


Wasting away to nothing

As if I were already dead

Any hope of escaping

Turns to nothing instead


I am an alien here

Anathema to it all

Though there’s no need for love

When one has already lived too long


You’re so vicious to yourself

So uncharacteristically unkind 

You let others’ cruelties

Build a wall inside your mind


Maybe I could stand

In some other life

But despite my efforts here

Peace has not come with time


You’re the only one who cares

Who told me that I could be loved

Words can not express my gratitude

But to the decay I’ve succumbed
