"You're Right"

by Captain Lonesome   Apr 26, 2022

I had no reason for what I did
There was no pain I kept hid

You're perfect, you're right
I'm a monster in perfect sight

You never did anything wrong
You were there for me all along

From the beginning I destroyed it all
I always chose to make the bad call

I'm darkness and you are light
I'm at fault in every single fight

I'm the guilty one, not you
I always lie, you're always true

You're not staying just to use me
I know that's just crazy

I'm the one who gave up first
You're the best, I'm the worst

You're right, we both knew
You said it so it must be true

    I do love well crafted sarcasm. This is quite the sardonic piece you have here, and I can clearly see your frustrations with your current situation bubbling over some with this bit of writing. I hope it brought you some relief to get some of these frustrations out with ink and pen. A few of the lines like “You never did anything wrong, You were there for me all along” hit very close to home with me. Good job maintaining and keep the sarcastic tone consistent throughout the whole piece. This definitely has a bit of a different feel to it than your other pieces that I have read.
