Forget the words he said.

Erase them from your head.

Don’t fight me.

I’ll kill you just a bit

so you’re asleep

while he’s inside you.

Lie down and let me bathe you

in a film of sickness

that will shroud you.

Feel your skin dissolve,

I will absolve you

of this sin.

Close your eyes

and let confusion

be your friend.

This deathly chill will pass.

Soon you’ll believe

this was just

a violent dream.


Note: the first two lines of this poem are almost identical to the opening lines from the song Slow Dive by The Clavvs.
