It’s (wholly) clear to me
that you're no use to me.
Where you demand my time
I will cut the ties.

I'll discredit your memory,
I'll sever the cord,
I'll reclaim command over my own choices
without grief or remorse.

The host nurtures the parasite
to be discarded after tending to you.
An imperfect balance, one-sided affair.
Tightly anchored, fading away.
It will be easier for
them to jump into the water,
for them to drown
and be released.

You killed my joy
and stole my worth.
You were my blight
and not the first.
You don't know who you are
you only know
the person you think you should be.


from Exuvia, released August 1, 2021

Drosophelia Amsterdam, Netherlands

A painted world in which memory, decay and industrialist tones meet science fiction; a eulogy for the what-has-been and that what-will-never-come-to-be.
