wilted

abusive is the way you talk
as if my goals aren't high enough
showing no remorse for my pain
and beating me down into shame
pursuing dreams that aren't even my own
doing it for pay that's not even worth it
if there was ever a soul in that monster
it was probably swallowed long ago
from greed and a need for prestige
it is never your back that is broken
so you threaten me with replacement
as if you could
you're a fucker, not dumb
because no one would put up with this shit
so I hold no cards, but I do own a mirror
what I see for myself is pride
when I turn it your way
I wonder what you might see
is it the cruel dictator?
no, it probably is a delusion
where you fancy yourself a rebel
a hero for the common folk
but to me you're an abuser
that sucks the life out of everyone
with every little disgusting word
