How do you describe to someone

who is so apathetic and cruel

that they’re that kind of angry again?

you may have thought you had an off switch,

a kill code,

but it’s trapped somewhere inside of that skull, and you

are not at home, absent,

please-leave-a-message-at-the-tone

and i am standing at your door in the rain
--
You didn’t let me say goodbye, goodnight, that I love you-

with the riveting explanation of your all day absence tomorrow,

you deftly gave our relationship the middle finger.

little do you know

the screams that will exit your mouth and

the adrenaline that will soak your muscles

when you have found you could not say goodbye,

goodnight,

i love you;

corpses cannot hear,

there will be no forgivance.

mottled skin, snapped bones,

coagulated clots spilled on frosty pavement,

glassy eyes

This... I understand!

So great to see you back, Draco!

Hm.

I feel like this is entirely the wrong response to a rage-fueled poem.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep.

I merely said...

that I understood... not that it made me happy!

Some poetry appearing here I find incomprehensible...

No

I meant the cheerful 'welcome back'.

You're an odd man, Elphy. An odd man indeed.
