Adversaries Daughters' - Poem by olivia helmes

enemies remorse is given
debts payed in full
flowers from the mourners
Im stuck here all alone

Nurses sing praises of me
doctors give me toys
you left me
im stuck here alone

the knife is so slender
sharpened by my own hand
i havent come to surrender
ive come to take my revenge

his blood is spilled
his death to cancel yours
a startled cry makes me whimper
a little girl in the corner
shes like me now
we both are all alone
