Kill Me Lovely

Kill Me Lovely

A Poem by Lexi Askew
"

La petite mort

"
I will die
A million little deaths
My legs will go numb
And I must be carried
To my next murder
Where I will die
A million more little deaths
Take me away
And keep me under
With no chance
Of coming back to life
Make it gruesome
Cut out my heart
Teach me the meaning
Of a little death
