Don’t take this the wrong way
but who do you think you are?
You serenade me with a golden harp
yet bind my hands and feet.
You torture me,
My screams fall on deaf ears
You manipulated me in the times I trusted you.
and judge my existence with every breath I expire.
You delude yourself with illusions of control
and when I ask why,
you imagine that I’m besotted with you
I grow mundane of righteously defending my honor.
Don’t take me for a fool
I cannot be what you want me to be
I will not cut myself before you believe I bleed
You will not sit on your high horse
and watch me grovel for attention
my free will must erode your ego
and as sure as the sun shines,
nothing can hide forever.
You say we are similar
I think like charcoal and diamond.
Everyone on social media believes your facade
Today I pen the truth, the first and last time
unearthing a love story that never was
Never again will I be startled by your white noise
for what does a sociopath have in common with an alexithymic?
