Waste Not, Your Tears

Let them fall not for me,

for I have been shown

that I be

worthless of

such sacred emotion.

I am but a mere

shattered being,

becoming incapable

of caring

in a world so dead set

on splitting a spirit

in two.

Let tears fall

where they may,

tho let them not

fall in my path

of self-destruction,

lest they hinder my steps

towards the oblivion

I seek.

And when I be gone

from this,

so cold and cruel a place,

waste not your tears

as I lie stiff

and motionless.

For the rigor mortis

of my lonely soul,

set in long before

the time

of my death.
