Guest spot. Lizzie Borden took an ax by author and poet Maria Manuela Cardiga

I have loved life
Much longer
Than I have loved you,
So I know
There is no loss
Of love or limb
I cannot survive,
And in this case,
Only amputation
Will suffice
To cut that bind,
That thing
Between us two-
End it -
Cut it through.

Whatever pain
 From what love
May remain
I will cure,
The phantom
Of my heart
I will endure.

Come now,
Don't complain!
Must I yet again
This is your will,
Not mine!

So hold still;
Don't struggle so,
While I strike
That final blow
And sever
My heart from you.
