THIS SOUNDS LIKE A SIMILAR IDEA TO THE POEM I JUST POSTED…ALTHOUGH A DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCE!
Devious and charming, beguiling and alarming,
You stormed in and gently spoke.
Kindly and insidiously, caring and selfishly
You built me up as you tore me down.
How did beautiful become hideous
and intelligent, dumb?
You lied and called me your home
even as you were only passing through.
You settled down but never took up root
in the earth you claimed you were bonded to.
How did want become brute force
and partnership, possession?
You liked that I was independent
but were disgusted that I was stubborn and headstrong
and my self-governance was only beneficial
if you could bend it to your will.
You adored when I spoke
but only if I remained silent
to hide the darkness you worked in the light.
I was perfect-
you swore wouldn’t change a thing-
but only when you had erased
and over-written every last part of me
