Haunt Their Dreams

Source

Selfish,

he wanted someone else

dreaming of his painful death,

cruel,

extremely bitter,

mental ridicule,

mental abuse,

huge tears,

dark fears,

fits and outbursts,

questions hitting the fan,

why, why, why,

did he want to die, die, die?

He was hanging

from a beam

so the sight would

haunt their dreams.
