Constructive Criticism

I’m tired of the tirades

Echoing relentlessly in my skull

I simply vain to take a rest

And climb over the wall

But it just keeps growing higher

Conundrums cemented to reach the skies

And I’m tired of being the builder

In this construction of lies.

Lies in Jewelry Boxes

Your sophism was a true talent

Which I was rather envious of

Lacing my tongue like hemlock

Its toxicity I’ve learned to love

Diamond lies glimmer lethally

I mined it out of your arteries

Coruscating past an acid flesh

Transpiercing it all desultorily

Who am I to cease your whims?

Cuffs bejeweled with gold voices

So offer me rubies and sapphires

If you feel precious and helpless

Faux phantasm you think succinct

Painting an entity bland and bleak

And I was a fool to let you think I am

You didn’t have to lie to be the higher man.
