the dark side

Kylo Ren says to let the past go –
“kill it.”
But I don’t think that worked
like he planned.
He should have kept it metaphorical.
It’s not bad advice –
sometimes I think about killing
the memories
that still haunt me.
Kill them dead.
Gone. No more. Erased.
I would strangle them like they did to me.
I don’t want a sweet ending,
but a punishment that fits their crime.
Then again,
Kylo didn’t just terminate
the memory –
he went to the source.
Sometimes I think about going
to the source and pulling
a Kylo Ren –
fierce red light saber and everything.
Does that make me a Sith?
Or just human?
