The Raven

Pretty girl

You looked at me

No idea what you see

Do you see the blame?

And the shame I feel?

Maybe less than half a man.

Never enough,

Looking for normality;

So I built

My own reality.

The raven moves

His beak so quick

Click, click, click;

He tears his prey apart.

Does he wonder how he got this way?

Not so;

And nor do I.

That night

I gave my life to you.

You slapped my face

I said it’s true,

You are what I need.

You called me a liar;

The only lies I ever told

Were to myself,

And they grow cold;

So the raven comes to feed.
