My vision of you is blurred
as the windows of your eyes
are coated with an acid rain
Do they burn from the deceit
and the tyranny you have inflicted
or are the tears merely from fear
of your own self-conservation
I saw right through your incandescent skin
the narcissism in your veins have betrayed
what little compassion is left
digging that narrow mind deeper
and deeper into a place where all
mortals are forever lost
