I committed a crime, a brutal crime

and its only a matter of time

before I’ll wish that I could rewind

and not give in to the urges of my mind

and take all those thoughts & put them behind


thoughts that made me such a fiend

I’ll wish that I had only paid heed

to those who knew I’d fail to succeed

in getting away with this heinous deed

and replacing my sanity with hopeless needs


She never ever really had a clue

about what I was going to do

and that I was crazy and mental too

apparently, but I know it can’t be true

crazy people don’t kill unless it was due


unless it was with all the right reasons

unless somebody committed treason

I waited patiently for her to go see him

those 4 hours felt like 4 seasons

head filled with thoughts so gruesome


It made me cut open her heart

the knife in my hand gave me such a start

I threw it away only to dart

into the empty lane that I’d marked

in my head before I came to embark


on this mission that’ll lead me to my death

or a dirty cell with a worn down bed

or a case that will run for 10 yrs instead

and I realized I hadn’t moved a step

with all these thoughts running through my head


I forgot to run; a metre back

her blood trickling down into the crack

on the pavement they built a few yrs back

before I knew about nameless and jack

before I could even keep track


of those two and their love divine

now I stand here, a dead body next to mine

the police arrive and have me tied

and all I’m thinking in my stupid mind

is that I wish that I could rewind
