role reversal

you played me for a fool,
deceiving me at every turn,
misleading me with every word,
duping me with your sweet touch.

then my self slapped myself,
waking me from this imaginary world
you created with your eyes and lies.

now, here i am behind bars because
i spoke the truth
and told them all
that it was indeed me,
that swallowed your lies,
spit them back up,
turned them into knives,
and cut out your fucking eyes,
and i love that nobody can hear your cries;
…you only hear the goodbyes.
you stupid mother fucker.
