Poetry Submission: Mirror, mirror

I needed you to show me what death looked like.

.

What torment felt like, what sadness was.

.

I needed you to dig my grave and lay me ever so gently into the dark dark ground never to be seen again.

.

I needed you to show me what agony resembled, dishonesty embodied, and what fear composed.

.

You showed me that while staring deep into my eyes with a smile across your face.

.

I needed you to lie, to cheat, to steal from my pockets, from my mind, from my soul, from my heart.

.

I needed that more than you’ll ever know.

.

I needed you to use me, abuse me, peruse me, and climb off of me again and again and again.

.

You showed me what I was missing.

.

You showed me all of the wrong.

.

You showed me how much I hated myself for allowing you into my home.

.

And yet because I saw death in its face, I was able to see the truth.

.

It was me who showed me all those things, never really you.

.
