CLOAK

 

What is that cloak....you hide behind......

I know it well.....

a previous friend of mine,

had designed one once....exclusively for me....

fitting just like a glove...

 & I wore it...

constantly.

It's design...

well tailored...

colourful ....were it's threads...

a most beautiful cloak....

for one who was Dead ~

Stitched carefully from remnants....

of life & times past....

the one who desired me....

wanted the pattern to last ~

Thus the template was begun....

so long ago....so subtle....

how was I to see this.....my life's planned rebuttal.

 Wicked imaginations were being laid upon my life....

the grand scheme....carefully played out....

to make me a wife.

Wife or prisoner.....either shall do....

he cares not of the title....

 ~ only that he owns you ~

The taste for darkness was natural to me.....

the palette had been well seasoned.....

at a young age....

....methodically.

A wise stewardship....

carefully laid plans....

The pattern of corruption.....

kept me in his hand ~

Details of which.....

the template had been made...

the garment.... wove so carefully

to wear in life's parade ~

I see your cloak.....

**very fine indeed**

trademark stitching from the one who desires thee.....

Threads made of...

...  only the best corrupt seed.....

bought on the black market of human need.

Then weaved into threads....

to sew your garment of.....

so colourful are the remnants....

and Oh, ~

 *it fits like a glove*

But their colors shall fade.....

the stitching shall give way...

 as you wear it constantly.......to eventual decay.

For the one who has made & designed it.....

just for you ~

Cares NOTHING of your loyalty....

your just a pawn.......

for him.....

....to use.

 

And when he's bored with your lamenting & tears....

........you are alone....

..............he dumps you....

.....................as you lay....

..........................right here.
