Play the Victim

There is nothing apart from past,

History of skin trapped in lithium dreams

Made to be more than sleeping schism

Where you play the eternal victim,

Schizophrenia lover, drowning dignity,

There is nothing apart from past

That you mimic as ‘the deep and meaningful’,

Until you don’t get your Golden Fleece,

Forgetting betrayal was all you gave,

Except when you gave ‘it’ away to anyone

Willing to swim inside your open waters,

Crying, “It was youthful indiscretion!”

Play the victim, going down with the ship,

When all around float unused life vests,

Your orchestra plays on, a simple melody,

Wanting passion, offering choked hearts,

There is nothing apart from past,

Eclipsed degradation, enchanted debris,

The small contaminations of fidelity

That strain emotions ‘that could have been’,

So now I say… Play the victim,

There is nothing apart from past.
