Black Poetry : a note to someone I don’t know

so this is a circular firing squad
everyone must die
because you figured out life isn't always pleasant
and most folks are not honest
what am i to make of that smile
you would flash when you saw me
or the way you gazed into my eyes
when the moon sat high in the sky
was all the intimacy, passion, compassion
and empathy just lies
ok i guess it’s fine
that you’ve decided you’re better off dead
but why did you choose to kill me too
for my pen had life and was
my life sustaining blood
and I washed you in every word
or was it actually my love
and devotion that killed you
perhaps you’re right
it’s best to shut it all down
no more journeying as raindrop and leaf
no more depending on each others love
for pain relief and protection
