I stole a heart and broke it,
took time that wasn’t mine,
pocketed memories when other people
claimed happiness I did not buy.
I am a thief.
I know it. So does he who hangs beside me.
Even under pain of torture
unable to resist this nature,
I enlist my fellow felon in one last larceny:
The Perfect Crime.
And so we die common thieves
who steal my place in paradise.
