About Last Night

By: Francisco Vega

 

Last night I thought about killing you

Because I can’t stand the sight of you with another man

I know you’re not doing dirty things with them

You’d tell me if you were

But I know they’re thinking about you

In those ways

In the ways that only men think

Last night I thought about killing you

About bashing your head in with a pan

About drowning you in the kitchen sink

About cutting you up into little pieces with the dullest kitchen knife

Last night I thought about killing you

And I’ll probably think about it again

Because my love for you knows no bounds

And I know it will transcend your death

Last night I thought about killing you

Only to realize

The gun was already in my hand
