once upon a time, long long ago...

it could have been over that very day
shattered glass
tears of rage
and 'I hate you, I hate you, I hate you'

but we were never satisfied with just enough
we had to go until there was nothing left
until we were down to bones and dust
it was all about the kill
it was nothing but constant pain
a two year game

it wasn't my life
it wasn't even my body
but I was there and I saw it all happen
every single moment
but now I don't remember a thing

except that one day
shattered glass
tears of rage
and 'I hate you, I hate you, I hate you

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
