|Oil painting by Nicola Samorì (source)|
Monster and man
You sensed you had power.
And you did.
You had power over your own darkness,
but you smeared it all over me. Continually.
Until I was painted black.
Your blood was lies.
Every brain cell of yours an instrument of torture.
You were a monster.
Oh, such a dark monster
Wearing the costume of a man.
