self-victimisation | a poem against vampires

you called yourself a victim

with blood on your hands

*

whilst you cannot be criticised

I’m bleeding to death

*

you destroy our livelihoods

and villainise us in the same breath

*

she talks about her soul

but her eyes are blank

*

you presented yourself in the best way

and I believed it

and I lied to myself

I myself put you in the limelight

*

when success set in

the laurels of our dedication

you sure pulled the ladder up behind you

as quickly as you could

*

I truly wanted to believe

everything you pretended to be

*

because at some point people would say no to you

and the hardships you cause

you stand tall

because you crush their shoulders

*

memoryblind

*

she plays nice

she plays nice

she plays nice

careful, she’ll bite

*

and because she seems so nice

acts so nice, nice, nice, nice,

it makes me sick,

nobody would ever think that

she had a mean bone in her body

she fools her audience well

*

it didn’t take her two minutes

to wipe the smile off her face and

badmouth you behind your back

*

did you think that I’d

still walk around as if nothing happened

after you chopped my head off?

*

stand by your choices

stand by your actions

but you betray them

by putting on a false face

a mass grave of lies

*

they come out to play

only when they can make themselves look good

*

I made you look good

but words don’t matter to you

money matters

and I see right through you

and there’s nothing left

how could I have not seen this coming?

*

she took the safe side

safe money

and latched herself onto you

sucking you dry

and you still think that you’re in charge

*

he wants my body to function

not my soul to live

*
