I Knew I Had To

I Knew I Had To
(black candles)


I knew I had to

And so I walked into their bedroom
and killed them

A gun to the head:
my stepfather first,
and then my mother,
awakening to her death

As I opened the door

as the black wax
coated my carpet

I sat on the floor,
pulled out the book
and began to read

"You must do it, my son,"
the voice said to me

Yes, I know
