Your Burning Body (Haiku)

Poem by Stephen Lee

I watch your body
It sits there in the fire
Those lost memories

The flames lick your face
And I’m glad that you have gone
Because you hurt me

I loved you so much
And then you went off with him
Now you are but ash

And I watch you burn
Knowing this is how it ends
Now that you are gone
