I wish to release you
from this prism,
and myself from this
memory prison.
Let your light shine
gloriously
somewhere else, please.
For you have burnt yourself
in neon upon my retinas,
and the glow persists,
even when I beg
for total darkness.

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

Nice short, matter of fact poem.  You express what needs to be said without using any complex diction or description.
