The Strange Case of Strangers

Whose fault was it

That turned me against you

Made me question you

Hate you.

What was the tipping point

The final act

Before everything became so

Excessive?

When did it go so wrong?

Was it when I bared my soul

Shared my burdens

Only for you to shrug it off

Laugh at me

Treat me like a child?

Where were you when I decided

No more

I’m done.

Why was I always encouraged to feel this way

Think this way

So I’m the only devil

Among demons wearing angel wings.

How do I change myself so

Your voice 

Doesn’t grate against my mind

Your actions 

Don’t make me think of houseflies and

Your name on my screen

Doesn’t make me want to throw my phone across the room.

Do I even want to?

The conditioning is so deep rooted

I don’t even know what’s mine anymore.

I guess

We’ll just remain strangers

Who happen to live together.
