Stay Gone

She is building a cute ‘Cleansing Fire’
… whilst, he is busy
fucking someone new…
who he feels absolutely nothing for.
‘Emotions’ are several streets away
from where I’m situated… and,
I’m about to start walking
in the complete opposite direction.
The phrase ‘Division Of Assets’
makes me twitch somewhere other
than my [Mocking] face…
I smell FREEDOM… at long last…
and ‘The Universe’ owes me
lots and lots and lots of Make-Up Sex!
I never say “Goodbye” to people
I am quickly leaving the fuck behind
… I simply ‘Smile’ widely…
at every single step forward I’m taking.
