I am Ė
An assassin of imaginings;
A jailer of souls!
A prostitute of manipulation!
I am Ė
A dream killer...
Look hard at me with open eyes,
And see abuses I devise
To steal the essence of your love;
While speaking truths of God, above.
A curs-ed way
To spend oneís day;
A selfish little game I play.
Ah, yes! My victim - ripe to pluck,
A torn down ego full of muck -
Who needs my Godly, worldly aid;
A psyche ready to persuade
That Iím the one
With whom to run,
For I reflect the midnight sun...
Come close to me and hold my hand,
Right by your side Iíll make my stand,
And promise my undying trust;
Defending you from those unjust.
Iíll snake right in,
Crawl in your skin -
As loyal as your next of kin.
Itís working! Now youíre mine, alone.
Youíve come to me to hence condone
Your sad existence on this earth;
Supposed self-hating thoughts since birth.
Oh happy be
Youíve come to me
All caged in mire where you canít see.
How fitting for me now to find
That selfishness rules in your mind!
At such strong pace - that Iím the fool;
Now Iím the one whoís treated cruel...
As karma wins
And anguish pins
My days engulf me with my sins.
In sickness, gripped - we play our game,
With years of practice Ė both the same.
For in our souls we share one fact;
Weíre both exploiters with an act.
How we abuse
And we misuse
The love we share Ė our daily muse.
A tragic story to behold,
My heart-strings cut down as foretold.
This pay-back hurts and stings and churns;
Itís well deserved and sorely burns.
Have set ablaze
My reckoning - with painful days.
With just deserts Iíve made my bed;
My path enlightened Ė ego, shed.
A lesson learned in mind and sight
By retributionís cutting spite.
I must let go
And learn to grow;
Find mercy in Godís golden glow...
