I Hope

How could you love innocence when you never loved yourself?
How do you withhold a hate that reflects in the mirror?
Never looked at the sketched paintings behind these words
Tried to bleach these writings on the wall into confinement  
Just to smears emotions into a hazed darkness
Incinerated walls showing the gateway to true evil  
 
I hope you choke on guilt
That I can't swallow  
I hope you are blinded by trauma
That I can't hide
I hope you hear all this hate
That I can't silence
I hope these guides words haunt what you call a soul
 
I'm coming at you with all these well deserved intentions  
With new sight shedding the beauty in these trees
The thought of you used to set forests ablaze
Do these tears have color from your fallen empire?
Or does denial still roam those exhumed bones?
I'm unleashing this psyche to prey on the heartless
 
I hope you feel all the pain
That I won't suffer anymore  
I hope you see all the truth
That I won't bury anymore
I hope you kill the lies
That I won't take anymore
I hope these guided words haunt what you call a soul
 
Know that you can't control the disconnected
Know that this fire will cast light on that shadow
Know that this pulse will beat to crumble your core  
Know I was never yours & will always be I
