You'Ve Made Your Bed - Poem by Alexander Shaumyan

You've made your bed, now go ahead and lie in it,
And I don't care if you changed the sheets,
For no linen can conceal your lying,
It's all about your destructive deeds.

It matters not - the one who sleeps beside you -
For in your linen there've been many more -
With no conscience or remorse to guide you -
You acted like it's nothing to deplore.

And I don't need your childish accusations
Or all the things you claim were done to you,
For there is no real justification
For treating others in the way you do.

So go on, put on your smile and makeup
And tell some others how great they are,
For you've always been a lovely faker,
While leaving others with long-lasting scars.
