"Write a letter to someone you are afraid" APM prompt
// Hi, hello, Namaskar,
Or whatever the greeting is
From where you come.
I wish I could see your face
I catch a glimmer in a second
But it changes in less than a heartbeat.// // I shape you and mould you,
But you will not give me any credit.
I have absolute control over you,
But somehow you do not belong to me.
I try to understand and befriend you,
But your secrets are the one
I am afraid of the most.
Secrets that I know will tear me,
Bring me to my knees
Turn my blood black until it bleeds
From every forgotten vein In my body.
Like your actions have done before. // // You are the biggest criminal of mankind
The worst necessary evil,
As you steal everything from him,
And leave him on street corners,
Hungry and wanting some compassion.
As you make him ‘invest,’
And hang his ‘returns’ over his head,
Like the uvula in your big gaping mouth.
As you let a mother look towards you hopefully,
And You grin your devilish smile,
That turns her hope into prologues of desperation.
Whose approval are you really looking for?
Who will you share your laughter with? // // You, who are the main reason for my breakups,
The affair that I so solemnly cherished,
As I lived in the past,
Your charm just simply took her away from me.
As I loved the past,
Your emminent presence is what
Broke my glass bubble.
You might wield the power to
Turn seeds into flowers, tree from a peach.
Destroy cities in hours, pasture into a beach.
You might have time on your side
And use his healing ability as your bitch.
Amidst fake promises to behave well
Your unpredictability is your downfall. // // But,
As you lure me to worship you, again.
And as I surrender my mind to you, again
And give in to chasing the carrot tied to my back, again.
Remember the last time you betrayed me?
I’ll never trust you again.
Remember the last time you broke a promise?
I’ll never be able to love you again.
Remember the last time you changed skins?
I’ll always carry a dagger when I’m with you. //
