“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


She's given
Up
On any kind of talionic existence

Because yes,
He
Hurt
Her

And yes,
Vengeance burns her
Tongue

But it's an empty thing, revenge: to
Destroy
The object of your
Wrath
And to be left with nothing but the
Hurt
That that person inflicted
Upon you

What does it really resolve, except to finally
Reveal to you
That you're no
Better?

So she decided on a compromise: to
Keep both her dignity and
Her soul

By forgiving

Because it wasn't for him,
Anyways.
