Burn This Book

my book is full
it's time to say goodbye
time for silence
sweet silence
I'll kiss your eyelids closed
I hope you will be happy
now I will burn this book
release all those cringing memories
a gift to the flames
the gift of forgetting
I do so want to forget
I can't drown it
water wouldn't work
it could be salvaged still
I want it gone to ashes
I want you gone to ashes too
it never was a joke
silly
that was just my way of trying to survive it with my mind
still in tact
I guess it didn't work
now I've overdosed on sloppy words for you
I must burn this book
if I do not
it
you
will always be there
in the back of my mind
so now
this last page
along with all the rest
will be free to the air
smoke spreads fast
I will miss you
and my words for you as well
but now
finally
you will be dead to me
goodbye
you're lucky I don't burn you down too
