I Despise You
God how I despise you.
You twist my words, perverting my kindness
Pursuing your own deluded narrative of my wretchedness
Proclaiming yourself the tragic hero, enduring the pain inflicted by the keen sting of my volatility
You omit your arrogance
Your ineffectual and passive sympathy
Your dismissal of my every effort to enable your understanding
You artfully forget your inability to perceive the severity of others’s turmoil
Praising yourself for your empathy
Blubbering and thrashing in search of pity,
Of the understanding which you so lack
And so, I despise you.
