VAIN IN IMPERFECTION

VAIN IN IMPERFECTION

A Poem by HadesRising
"

So, today I heard that you hated me But it’s okay because it’s all I ever see You fear what you do not understand That’s landed me on the list of the damned

"

So, today I heard that you hated me
But it’s okay because it’s all I ever see
You fear what you do not understand
That’s landed me on the list of the damned

What I’ve said before cannot be made any clearer
As the night grows nearer I’m there when your dreaming
And when you wake screaming, lo, the monster in the mirror

And so today I heard that you love me
But it’s okay because it’s all I ever see
Kiss me a bomb and dip it in blood
And together we will send it to God

Vain in imperfection
Am I good enough for something like you
Staining the perfection
I can never be bad enough for the likes of you

Drink from the tarnished chalice
Add a M to your Alice
And make you a Malice
In wonderland we revel
Put a D on my Evil
And make me your Devil

So, today I heard that you despise me
But that’s okay because it’s all I ever see
Cut away the cancer that I am
And then put me on the list of the damned

What’s been said before has never been more truer
Because all the rumors are prime for a killing
There’s nothing more thrilling than to feast in the sewer

And so today I heart that you want me
But that’s okay because it’s all I ever see
F**k me a bomb and paint it with blood
And together we will send it to God

Vain in imperfection
Am I good enough for something like you
Staining the perfection
I can never be bad enough for the likes of you

Drink from the tarnished chalice
Add a M to your Alice
And make you a Malice
In wonderland we revel
Put a D on my Evil
And make me your Devil

You can f*****g hate me
And I will love you back
Chain me to the ground
And paint me black

Vain in imperfection
Am I good enough for something like you
Staining the perfection
I can never be bad enough for the likes of you

Drink from the tarnished chalice
Add a M to your Alice
And make you a Malice
In wonderland we revel
Put a D on my Evil
And make me your Devil

Really well written piece and the repetition works well. Good composition Hades.

well done.

i like what you did with the letters, addition and subtraction, just like what life does or makes us do.
and i really like the third stanza with the bomb and God.
So much hate and killing done in the name of God...i am not sure that is what he is enamored of.
He probably would prefer a bit of love.
