“Your Constant Need…”


Your constant need for validation

Haunts my ranging soul

Suffocating on your filth

An unexpected role


At times like this I look for sense

As senseless as it is

Then remember you’re obtuse

And possess unmatched hubris


Mirrors mirrors on the wall

Telling truths when viewed

Stand in place and take a look

A soul-searching retinue
