Blue Hypocrite

a poem

The way you speak

Swirls and wriggles

Like a snake in a bush,

Losing the real meaning.

On the prowl,

Searching for a fool like me,

Words that don't align with intentions,

Trust shattered once

Now returns with an even greater force.

Knowing that I wasn't at fault,

Why would I still want this to continue?

Like a popular but terrible movie,

Instead of a timeless classic recipe,

In order to navigate these incredibly unpredictable waters,

I must have been the bait you desired.

It seems you aimed to entice me into your domain,

To help you forget about your imperfections

And unhealed scars that are impossible to shake off.

I believe it's time

To turn a mirror towards you,

And truly see things as they are,

From a neutral perspective,

Unaffected by your tainted

And a fabricated version of reality.


Thank you for reading!
