Check and Balance
You'll introduce yourself, beaming, letting all know your name
And I'll come busting through, elegantly, discussing your shame
You'll present ideas that are bold and ingenius
and then my lips will separate and replace yours : seemless
I'll not kill you outright, but hurt you beyond repair
If pain is in your body, I'll be the image you'll have in your cross-hairs
You won't even be able to take breath without wondering
What would he think?
Ideas of your bright-burning self image will soon be replaced
By how I supersede them, you'll turn to loathing and hate
You'll experience a life unimaginable
Yet consider thanking me because I left it habitable
Isn't this what you need?
A means to be yourself without letting your ego breathe?
A constant shadow in the corner, beckoning wisdom,in showing my teeth
You've got a future ahead of you, so long as you don't get fleeced
The thought of me will both encourage and sicken
Empower and imprison
You'll have length but still chains
Your word plus my will equals great weight.
You cannot escape me no, even if your mind was to decay
I'll keep coming back to haunt you, if but only in rested states
You'll think I'm an entity but it'll be your gravest mistake
We're one and the same
darling dearest I'll scream loud and whisper subtle
I'll leave you at unease all of your being rustled
What do you say to this dance?
You have no choice as I grab your hands
I can't be a parasite if our relationship is mutual
If asked to leave I'll extend refusal
If you bleed I bleed
The space in your mind, you'll find I hide : Grief.
