I have loved you.
I have died for you,
Time and time again.
So much death,
All to satisfy your appetite.
With every death I become weaker,
Each new life further tinged with regret.
I remember the last one,
When I was so much wiser than I am now.
I'm just a child,
Who knows nothing of what's to come,
Of nothing that it will grow to be.
No idea of the demons,
No idea of you.
Every time I step away,
I start a new life, away from you.
As I grow older, I become younger,
More naive and closed to the world.
You never knew me at my best,
But you have seen me at my worst.
So, again, I will try to walk away from you. This time, for sure.
