Written by James Christopher Sheppard

Even in pieces

you will be

Agony.

An eternity of searing and unfathomable pain

will be you,

every last cell.

You have no liberty for thought.

This is you now.

Choice was an extravagance.

Choice is no longer yours.

I’m sorry. I take it back I take it back I take it back. I couldn’t help it.

Quiet.

You have no voice here.

It is done.
