To Good To Be True

Some part of me always knew,
You were too good to be true.

Initially, oh-so-charming.
You always are...
The smiles...
The flattery...
The compliments...
The agreeableness...

Do you see through my insecurities...?

Such divine words,
Uttered and delivered...
So skillfully, with fluidity,
Quick to bombard me love-filled words,
And yet - with not a trace of genuineness...

Lip-service.

A broken tape-recorder...
A track on repeat...
A closed book...

Your smiles looked the same everywhere
So...perfected...
So...practiced...
So...eerie.

There was something odd...
Something odd.

Something strange always came through,
And then I knew, then - I knew...
You were too good to be true.

Your lack of empathy...
Something doesn't click.
Something doesn't give.
The sense of connection,
A sense I long for, yearn for, hunger for...
Non-existent.
Dead.

You never listen.
You never respect boundaries.
And sure enough, the inconsistencies
Start to pile and pile.

You make fun of me.
You humiliate me in public.

And then,
You’d treat me for coffee?
You'd make me a meal?
You’d lend me money?
You’d spoil me?

Huh?

Then come the subtle demands:
Burdensome,
Unrealistic,
And you unmask yourself,
As the subtle, covert, tyrant you really are...

You talk behind people's backs,
And you expect me to...
Like you?
Trust you?
Believe you?
Like I owe you my feelings? My thoughts?

When you take offense -
At my privacy,
At my introversion,
At my reservedness...

You're too good to be true.
There’s a magnet next to your moral compass.

Tar covered in glitter...
A dead body sprayed with cologne...
Mucus and slime covered in dressing...
A decaying tree covered in Christmas lights...
A tank labeled “water” that’s leaking of liquid nitrogen...

A house of cards.

Danger. Danger. Fragile goods.

I stay quiet...
Not because I agree,
Not because I like you...
But because most of the time,
I can’t be bothered to confront you:
I do not want to break that huge dam,
That’s keeping your lake of shit,
From contaminating my waters.

I see through you so easily.

Give up.
It's useless.
Stop trying.
My senses are honed.
I’ve crossed paths with too many of you.

You lack true love to temper your rage.
And you all share one common trait:
You are deluded into believing,
You love someone you hate.

I know the walls you set up.
I know how you function.
Believe me.
I know.
I know.

It’s because...

A part of me,
Was turning into you.
Yes, a part of me...
Was turning into you.

But now...
Like water and oil,
Like heaven and hell,
Like white and black,

We are poles apart.

Hahaha....the way I understood it, this is great stuff.
_________________________
Quiet the noises
And leave your ears free to hear
What is going on,
Right Here.

Do not cower in fear
For when the morning rays mate with the leaves
Through your eyes it will be clear,
That there was actually nothing to fear.
