Mind MurdererMature

Searching eyes

Scanning me.

Looking for something

I cannot see.

 

You squint as though

I’m unknown to you.

I’m still the same.

It’s the world around me that has changed.

Your face reads

Disgust at my actions.

My mind, murdered by thought

Could only think on impulse.

 

But don’t pretend

That I’m different because

In the past

I would have done same.

 

Why do you test me?

What do you hope to find?

I am the same man.

Why can’t you go back home?

 

Frightful gaze

Passing over.

This life form

Is alien to you.

 

Investigating me

As though you’ll find evidence.

The winds of change

Blew all around me.

Standing tall alone

As I always have been.

What you call help

Is slowly destroying me.

 

Stop acting

As though I’m different because

If you look back,

You’d see I’d do the same.

 

Why do you test me?

What do you hope to find?

I am the same man.

Why can’t you go back home?

Endlessly gazing

As the clock ticks by.

You’re still beside me

Waiting for that breaking point.

 

Some sort of explosion,

A bomb hidden in the hurt.

Surgically placed

By Devil’s spawn.

 

Suspecting violence,

A mind darkened by sadness.

A gift from life

From people like you.

 

You won’t find anything.

I haven’t changed at all.

You won’t find anything.

I still stand alone.

 

You fucking temptress,

I will not show you this.

You fucking whore,

You damn double-crosser.

You will witness this

You will not push me further.

I cannot succumb,

But the anger is rising.

 

Why do you test me?

What do you hope to find?

I am the same man.

Why can’t you go back home?

Endlessly gazing

As the clock ticks by.

You’re still beside me

Waiting for that breaking point.

 

I came you with affection,

And you turned it into an attack.

I loved you every day,

You never saw me.

 

I brought love with me,

Now there’s nothing left.

But this hollow shell

Hasn’t moved at all.

The End
