A beautiful gift she thought she would share with the world
Now she is thinking it has only brought into her life bad things.
People, that used that gift against her
To either lure her into wasting her time
Or to try to steal a heart she had hidden so deeply away.
A strong vibrant woman once lost herself
In a sea of orchestrated attacks.
Allowing it to consume her was her crime
But theirs was much more heinous.
The devil comes in all disguises
Sometimes as a love you thought you wanted
But you really don’t.
Sometimes he promises you rain
Then gives you a drought
Consumed in a riddle is a score
If you find it then you win the bet
Between you and I
And this treacherous pride of mine
That almost wants to let you win
Just so you can understand
What this so called ‘gift’ of mine
Has given to me.
I hand you a gavel
Tell you that you are judge, jury, and executioner
I then throw myself on the mercy of the court
Confess to shit I never even did.
Hand you a gun and extra ammunition
Because fuck knows the last time you shot
And I cannot promise that my pride won’t make me run.
The very next charlatan
That uses my writing
As a weapon against me
Will get a wrath
Ignored like fuck
Whichever I decide at the time.
Once I sat at the Vatican
Put my feet up on this marble table
Listening to people talk about how they feed the poor
In other nations
When I interject
To tell them right outside the door there are poor
They make up excuses
As to why they cannot feed them.
The rich are so stupid
All they have is money
No compassion for their neighbor
No willingness to assist a neighbor in need.
Because it is far superior to say you helped the poor
In another country
Than to say you sat with one the other day
In your neighborhood
Giving them money and a moment of your time.
Worthless pieces of shit
If you ask me.
Once upon a time there was a married man
That liked to play games on the computer
The games would consist of luring women
Making them think he was in love with them
Then walking away as quickly as he supposedly fell in love.
He loved breaking hearts..
Speaking of love
I love watching dominoes fall..
I love the sound they make as they hit the floor..
