This is when I learned that revenge and retaliation are empty victories, and that, as someone else said, living well is the best revenge. But he needed killin'. He really did.


I wish for you …..
Restlessness and anger,
Confusion and despair;
Hearing screaming in the night
And finding no one there.
Loneliness and sorrow,
Sleepless and fear,
Demons from a thousand dreams;
Crying, without tears.
Always lost and wandering,
Alone, across the land,
With a suitcase and a ticket
To confusion in your hand.
One day, waking up to find
That suddenly, you’re old,
And all your bright tomorrows
Are yesterdays, turned cold.
And when your bed is empty,
And you hear the death-knell’s ring,
Calling out my name to find
That I’m not answering.
All this and more I wish for you,
So smug and smart and brave;
As I hope that someday, somewhere, soon
I can spit on your grave.
