Two-Face

Two-Face

You told me my nothing was something.
When I wanted to ignore, you brought into the light.
Now I am addicted.

Look at me again in that raging pity,
I am a candle burning at both ends.
I am beautiful.

I am ugly.
I am captivatingly hideous.
You did this to me
because I did it to myself.

Look at me again in that raging pity.
Now I am addicted.
Now my skin is burning and peeling
in the bright light of this glory you have bestowed
upon me.

I find myself passing
the days with a constant cringe
attempting to control the features of my face.
Your pity: a poison, leaving me
consumed by a sadness that need not exist.
You made me obsessed
addicted
ugly
and I allowed you to do so.

Look at me again in that raging pity.
I am a candle burning at both ends.
I am beautiful.
