Fanart: Villanelle, Killing Eve

my chest echoes

with the cries of my monster,

devoting anything that’s not you,

to a psychopath’s slaughter;

the monster in me

has a single-point view:

the only thing it wants

is the monster in you.

-L.M.G.

Firestone Friday: Poem XIV

When you fall in love

with a monster,

you either become

a monster

or a monster-slayer;

what you cannot do

is remain who you were —

the former version

of yourself

was sacrified

the moment you let

a monster into your heart.
