I built it like a veil.
Soft and Seductive.
A step towards foreplay.
I built it this way so I could add mystery to my life. Push you away yet draw you in. You wanted to see what is truly underneath. You were playing a game designed for you to never win. I built it this way to be hidden yet still be seen.
I built it like a mirror.
Familiar but deceiving.
A mirage planned to trap you. I made you fall in love with yourself. I mimicked every action you took. I called it been a soul mate to make you a part of me. I built it like a mirror so you would never see me. You do not love me you love only your reflection projected against me
I built it like a box.
A bland, brown, nothing note worthy box.
I built it like this so I do not arouse your insecurities. I built it like this to make you feel better about yourself while you stood next to me. You were never meant to see me. I camouflaged with the background to let you shine. Stifled my potential because boxes don’t shine. We were create to hold the things one had no use for anymore.
I built it loud.
Bang and clash everywhere.
What? You cannot hear me? It is by design. I built it that way so that you could not hear my inner voice shouting for help. I do not want to let you hear me admit I am scared, that I am lonely, that I crave human connection, that I do not want you to leave. I increase the volume to drown our thoughts. So that we never really have meaningful conversations.
I built it extravagantly.
The court jester in the group.
My mission is your amusement. Make you feel having me around is worthwhile. Make you need me as your entertainment. Use me I do not care. My purpose is you. My identity is you without an audience who am I? I lock my pride and sell it for a single laugh. I do anything to distract you from my own moments of turmoil.
I built it with thorns
Sharp, silver reinforced thorns.
Come closer let me lure you in with my words as I devour your essence.
I built on an illusion of a rose. I lie to you. Tell you I am worth the pain. Don’t you want to get closer to my soft petals? I promise I am delicate, just get past my thorns and I will never hurt you again.I pour acid down your throat. Fill your head with darkness. Steal your soul in the process. I am not sweet. I am damaged beyond repair and I will destroy you before you save me.
I built it just like me.
same fragrance that lingers on your clothes after I am gone.
I copied every feature of myself. Lured you into thinking I am open. Made you think you know me. Shared things with you. Built that connection. I lured you in an illusion. A labyrinth that has no solution. I took you away when you got close. Close to realise that who you knew was not me.
If you knew me you wouldn’t love me.
For my protection,
I built my mask,
the only way I knew how.
