I don't want you to see me
the way I am today.
Please let stand the memory
with nothing in its way.
I'd love for you to be here,
but the pity in your eyes
would make good times disappear,
replaced by demons' lies.
Death's a huge fell giant,
but hollowed out, within;
scary to make you compliant
to the devil's mannequin.
So remember me from better places;
let those be our last shared graces.
