Beyond Purgatory

You are etched into the rocks of all my favourite places

But even so I will turn every stone and walk on

Sometimes when my brain is asleep my limbs will find

Their way onto the southernmost rock in the world

And watch the waves wash you away

You who

Gutted every string from my innards like a mutilated harpsichord

Muted me so my notes screamed within but could not ring without

We wrestled each other into the white flames of purgatory

When we burned, we burned to extinction

So find my maimed heart among the ashes

All the missing edges are for you to keep
