How do you see the people that surround you?
How do you see?
Please, tell me
I see it already in my mind’s eye
We destroy, you and I
We are the same
Blame cannot lie anywhere other than at my own feet
I love you and I hate everything that you do
A wrenching hatred that courses through my veins like poison
Tormenting my heart’s love with its treason
How I despise you
I curse you
You and your righteous cause
Your wanton inability to take pause
To see the truth in what it is you do
How do you see me?
We are the same, you and I
So tell me, how do you see me?
I fear us
You reek of death
You are covered in blood
Dripping from your very being like an infinite fountain of red
I see you
So what of me?
Do you love me as you love yourself?
Or seek to rip my soul from my body in jest
Upon which side of the coin do I rest?
I see me
I bleed myself
While you bleed life from many
A virus strong
How do you see them?
Beyond the river of red that you feed
Atop the mountain of death that bleeds
Does what you seek lay in wait on the horizon?
Some cruel fate bound us together
Love me, as you I
