Your cruelty killed me.
And I thank you for it.
I scrap-metaled my life,
Sold off the excess
To reinvent who I was meant to be
You left me with nothing
Except the grime that your presence
Leaches onto everything you touch
With time and effort I rinsed it away
Leaving only shining transformable bits
I created a stranger to you
So I could become something better
I don’t hate you anymore
And how could I?
It’s because of you that I found the one person I want to be.
