194. Ben - Poem by John Westlake

Rotiart tell me who you want to be
I will turn you into someone else
you will hate what you have become
but it will be to late to change it

Tell me your fondest dreams
may they become as twisted as you
morphing into your worst nightmares
stopping you from sleep

Tell me who you truly love
and they will come to hate you in time
even your family will turn against you
leaving you exposed and alone

Show me your idea of heaven
I will make it your personal hell
instead of angels
your demons will surround you
none will listen to your screams

But why would I be doing this
you want to know the truth
it's what you tried to do to me
an eye for an eye
a tooth for a tooth
