My Level

You don’t say good morning

to me anymore

you just get dressed and

close the door.

My moods have finally

taken their toll

and now you have decided

to regain control.

For too long I have brought

you down to my level

it wasn’t your fault I was possessed

by an unwanted devil

who turned me into a man

I didn’t know,

that live his life by the rules of

a hurtful manifesto.

Now that you have broken free

his work is completed,

leaving me here alone

painfully defeated.
