Mercurial Fall

Why are you mean to me?

What have I done to you?

Did I pick at the parts of your identity

and tear them to shreds????

.

Do I stand at the top of the hill

and meritlessly proclaim myself king?

That’s what you do.

.

I see you through a picture frame.

Even though you say you hold yourself

to holy standards,

the glass is tinted red.

Have I demonized you?

.

Remember, remember

I once said…. I told myself,

that those words should never be mixed.

Did the breakage of that rule

lead to my fall?

Did I fall from grace?

.

Falling didn’t steal my voice.

I think you wish it did,

because you always try

to silence me.

If I’m silent will it stop?

.

It all began as a collection of jokes.

But I don’t think they’re funny anymore,

I don’t think I ever really did.

You’ve beaten the jokes senseless

and they’ve long since turned on me.

Do you really think it’s funny

anymore?

.

Did I pick at the parts of your identity

and tear them to shreds????

That’s what you do.

Have I demonized you?

Did I fall from grace?

If I’m silent will it stop?

Do you really think it’s funny

anymore?
