Two-Faced MonsterI smile again to the people aroundTwo-Faced Monster1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Pleasing them with the things I can
It's just the charade I do, round and round
Actually this is boring, no more fun
As the monsters turn away from my sight
'How foolish they were,'
I sneer and laugh
The truth I can no longer see whether I look left or right
'Isn't this too much?' you ask,
I answer gleefully, 'Nope, not yet, it's not enough.'
'Stop this act. It isn't what I want!'
'Eh? You're just yet another being that lies
This play continues, it won't stop. I can't.
Listen, it's interesting. Hear their cries.'
'But then if you insist,
"Won't you show me the monster that hides?"
My mind is crumbling while I balled my fist.
The monster smirks, its mouth open wide.
'You're just another monster,' its voice echo through my mind
'No, I'm not.' I clutched my head, denying the fact
'You and I are one and the same.
Lies all you can see. Truth you can no longer find.
The stupidity you contain, your useless tact.'
