Far Behind


 Your voice rang out

So loud and clear

It told me everything

I didn’t want to hear

Calling me names

And telling lies

Laughing at the hate

Glaring from my eyes

As you turn away

And leave me far behind


I’m not your puppet

For you to rule

I’m not senseless

Don’t take me for a fool

I can see through you

Through your disguise

I know you secretly

Are planning my demise

As you turn away

And leave me far behind


But I’m a step ahead

I won’t ever be stung

By the sharp words

Coming from your tongue

It will be a fierce war

But in the end I’ll win

Leaving you with grief

And shivers through your skin

As you turn away

And leave me far behind


I’m the one you almost hurt

So keep me in your mind

As you turn away

And leave me far behind

    Almost virulent, passionately fierce and definitely dangerous. A vengeful piece indeed, threatening and lingering, the conclusion effectively making the words "far behind" a lie, since if the threat holds, the speaker will never really be so "far" behind ever. Fascinating, eerie, haunting and chilling. Rather ugly in that sense. Well done if that was the intent.

    I love the format! It's really so unique! And also, the message in it gets across clear... I LOVE IT A LOT_ SO MUCH THAT I'LL MARRY IT, IF YOU'LL LET ME!!
