Close Up View
I'm sure this act has angered you.
Bringing thoughts to your confused self.
You never saw the other side of my proclaimed face.
A one sided image showing that I wasn't the person you saw me as.
You witness my true self.
For I let myself open for all eyes to see.
And you happend to walk in when my face was disfigured.
I never met to hurt you for I was only hurting myself,
Never letting you know what was going on,
Or why I let myself sink in this hole.
I'm sorry for disapproving all that you taught me.
I've always been too stubborn to listen to your life lessons.
I'm not sure if this one sided image will keep its figure.
But I am willing to change my proclaimed face,
And arrange this disfigurement,
To a simple stamp of what you want me to be.
Cause it seems that thats all you wanted from me .
but I'm not you.
you never let yourself sample the simple tastes of this world.
For within my eyes your the disfigured one.
And i've witness what this world has to offer.
You've let yourself be confined in the only place of your well knowing.
but we both remain in this self contained box.
And you only stayed in the corner, living the life that the world has in order.
And I only stayed on my side, living the life that the world has to hide.
But eventhough you don't see my side of the box.
You have only come to hate the life outside of the box.
So I'm ready to take my time for my act.
Cause you seem to know that remaining standing in the corner is the only way to act.
