Punishing the CadaverMature

Unlike you I wasn’t made in a factory.

Reality broke my stain-glass vision.

I didn’t need to be cared for,

A stark contrast to your list of demands.

 

I turn a deaf ear to your lies

And all the attempts you make to break me.

This state I was born in to

Will not fail to defend against you.

 

Come see me face-to-face

And look into my cracked blue gaze.

You scratched my irises

To prevent me from ever seeing the beauty of life.

 

Never will I

Give you the path

Back to

My wounded heart.

 

You’re a shark waiting for the blood to spill.

 

Compared to you I lived in sorrow;

Fed tragedy since birth.

Smoke-filled skies under corporate disguise

Cloak the thieves you associate with.

 

Sit down with me at this middle ground

And I close my eyes as you deliver

All the false news I don’t deserve.

All I did was care for our construction.

 

Like the villain you are you took the hammer

And smashed the golden foundation,

And out of spite kicked ashes

All over the grave your memories dug for me.

 

Inspect the man you see,

And view the blood pouring from his chest.

Yesterday I found your knife

Residing in this whole in my heart.

 

I will

Not relent

And give you

A way back.

 

You’re a shark starving for wounded to kill.

 

Observing from above my corpse

As I fall underground.

Don’t tell me we can look back and try

To rebuild our structure.

 

So restrained I was

When my ideals crumbled around me;

Around your maliciousness.

 

Observing from above my corpse,

To rebuild my foundation.

 

Unlike you I was formed in putridity.

Being created with the idea I wasn’t perfect.

It didn’t take a lesson.

Wish the same could be said for you.

 

Life forged my ideals to fit my growth,

You improvise against my script.

No love could fill the void.

You just wanted to give your body for sale.

 

Never come to my door

With our memoirs in your hands.

This conscience, now clear

Will refuse all of your futile attempts to conquer me.

 

You were a shark circling around the bloodbath.

All it takes is a harpoon between the eyes.

It’s shameful that I ever let you in my life.

Now you don’t have your own to live.

 

You were a shark; now just a carcass

Lying somewhere in the lake under your guilt.

The hurt is miniscule when stacked against

The suffering I received when our creation crumbled.

 

Observing from above your corpse

As you fall underground.

Don’t tell me we can look back and try

To rebuild our structure.

 

So restrained I was

When my ideals crumbled around me;

Around what we stood for.

 

Observing from above your corpse,

To rebuild my foundation.

 

I can

Rebuild

My own life.

 

I will

Rebuild

This new life.

The End
