#53) Vengeance is Mine

I think I once told you this world was a lie; that it would do nothing but cause you to cry

I think you ignored me and said goodbye; but now you’ve returned to ask me just why

.

Why did I let you still forge your way, when I knew the price of penance you’d pay?

Why did I watch as you rushed to the fray, and never once tell you, your heart was their prey?

.

I think I was there when you fell apart

I think I once offered to protect your heart

.

I think you were arrogant; self-owned and assured, that fate would be kind and life would be good

.

Such folly you possessed neath the soils of your breasts; and by god you did fail, when time gave its test

.

If but you had seen, the roots of the dream; sucking your soul, so empty and clean

.

Perhaps you’d have come back longing before, for me to again throw open my door

.

But blind as you were, you fell to the night, and mistook the stars for suns in their light

.

You reached for them all and did but attain, to nothing save air, and endless cold rain

.

But this is no answer! Please tell me, you cry

Now aching to know the truth of the why

.

Could not I have wrapped you tight within chains, and kept you with love away from all pains?

.

Could not I have forced your heart but to beat, for myself alone, and swept out your feet?

.

Oh if but I could, perchance then I would; if not you were stubborn beyond your own good

.

You seem to forget all that was done; by me from the start to show you the one

The one who would stand for you without cause; the one who’d defend and never would pause

The one who would set you high above all; the one who would catch you, if ever ye fall

.

But alas, you are crass, to but demand; that I should now show you, my most cruel hand

.

That I should reveal all truth of the lie, hidden beneath the answer of why

.

Why did I let you wither and die?

Why did I let you shatter and cry?

Why did I watch you waste all your time?

.

Why must you ask?

.

For vengeance is mine
