Narrowminded Ego - Poem by Elsa Bear

Why should I change and rearrange what’s on the surface
When you won’t even begin
to look outside your range?
I’m sick of painting two dimensional characters,
Drowning myself in redirection’s stained waters.

our conversations are peppered with subtext,
but i struggle to read between the lines.
you always had me pegged as so like you
but look closer and you'll see
i have more layers than you'll ever know

You hide yourself in locked doors
and shadowed halls,
Glossing over my apparent flaws
with such desperation.
Would you rather I settle upon
bloody satisfaction
Hammering the nails of our love into my shins?

i adored you once,
you made my heart ache
before i saw the real you.
your heart is wraped in stone,
you'll never let me in
you think i'll take up too much room
and there'll be none left for your ego
