piece by piece

if you could bury your bones,
do you know where you would put them?
because i still smell your scent
and will try to dig them up.
with muddy paws and broken claws
i'd drag you through the earth
until you surfaced piece by piece.
never let you rest.
i would lay you out
in the comfort of a home you'll never know,
peel off your skin
and lick you clean,
gnaw at your cartilage
then suck your marrow dry,
nibble at your eye sockets
crack your skull and break your ribs,
feast upon your spine
swallow all your teeth
and chomp and chew and crunch until you splinter into shards -
smaller smaller smaller -
one by one, piece by piece.
i'd never let you sleep.
