Avenge - A Poem. Can you guess, who is referred to as "he" in this poem?
Abhor, human!
Do not throw me into the pyre
To turn me into ashes

And dust

Neither, chant those Sanskrit hymns
Nor smear sandal on my mortal remains

Instead, allow me to rot
For the worms to crawl over my heart
Let the rotten stench of our love
Spread all across -
The land
The Oceans and the galaxies

This is my way to avenge him
He should smoulder
In regret
for his dreadful sin 
of bringing her into my life.
