apathy by warsan shire


So what are you going to say at my funeral 
now that you've killed me?

* * * * * Here lies the body of the love of my life 
whose heart I broke
Without a gun to my head
Here lies the mother of my children, 
both living and dead
Rest in peace my true love who I took for granted
The most bomb pussy 
who because of me sleep evaded

Her shroud 

is 
Loneliness

Her god 
was 
Listening

Her heaven 
will be 
a love without betrayal

Ashes to ashes
Dust to sidechicks
