A Victim's Retort

I wish your mind had betrayed its own with the
fervor mine had felt from your betrayal,
as your deceit hung limp and cold, unmoving,
showing yourself to be half a man.

I wish your heart had shattered into shards
that ground and sliced away at all you lied about
and drove you to your knees with desperate
outstretched hands.

I wish your words had burnt your tongue
and filled your disparaging mouth with blood,
so all that issued forth was strangled sounds
and a final breath.

More than this I wish that I could hate you
or truly cause you harm, but all I really
want is pick myself up from the ashes
and to remember you no more.
