Second Person - Poem by Alex Kult

Life's beat him down
Torn him apart and made him drown
In the lies and pain of everyday games
He flinches just at the sound of your name
You either don't care or you don't understand
All the pain you've caused this man
His mind is just a jumble of unsaid words
You kicked him over and made him hurt
But he still has the nerve to give you a serve
Of what you deserve
And pick himself up from the dirt
Trying his best to forget your feeble attempts
To test his mental strength
And ability to gain
The happiness you took from him when you played your game
You left him laying in the drain
And forced him to learn
How to move on from the past and not to yearn
For you anymore and just forget your name
And all the pain you came with
It took a while but he finally decided he wasn't a child
For you to toy with while he cried
And begged for you to just stop the lies
To be able to look him in the eyes
And say you loved him
The way he wanted you to
But that was too hard for you
Your mind was somewhere else all the while
And that's what he saw in every smile
And every pretend piece of kindness you threw when you saw the hurt in his eyes
The hurt you caused
And the act you paused
Whenever he wasn't around to drag you down
You didn't deserve the life he gave you
And the things he would say to you
Because in the end you got sick of pretending
And bashed his heart to the floor without a word
You just left him with that hurt
The only thing he had left in his mind
The only thing to remember you by

Poet's Notes about The Poem

so umm.. this was just an experiment.. i'm not sure if it actually turned out all that well.. but i was listening to a rap song while i wrote it so that would probably explain the lack of structure compared to my usual stuff.. so yea: 3
