You thought you had me figured out

You thought you had me figured out

A Poem by Brandon Lee Burton
"

you thought you knew me

"

So, your trying tell me who i am? or what i am? i think not, for what you just told me, tells me i am doing my job, that i still remain the Master of the Masks, that i can still hide me, even though the darkness within spreads more and more throughout me, it has turned my heart pitch black, my mind is almost completely eclipsed, and my soul is like finding a black cat in a dark forest, a forest of emotions running high, temper flares, depression sinks its ever so sharp teeth into me and has comsumed half of me if not more, my body long since rotting in pieces all that is left is the torn and peeled flesh upon my brow, and the only organs that havent soured completely are my eyes, they stare out at you seeing you for who you are, yet your eyes no matter how thick the glasses or how strong the contacts are, you dont even see a part of who ive become, yet you think you know me, bah, yes i say bah to you, keep trying but in the end i will not be the one to walk away not knowing, keep guessing, guesses lead to rumors, rumors lead to more thinking they know who i am, i find it amusing, more of a game, for if my name or reputation leaves your lips in utterance, it means your thinking of me, and that can bring me short bits of sanity, so spread what you want, tell them you know me, but remember, no one truly knows me, no one ever will, and just when you thought you had me figured out...

Wow, this was very good. You show what's going on inside you and how it contrasts with the outside very well. I also enjoyed the part where you explain what happens when people think they know you. Good job!

I thought I knew someone once, thought I had them "figured out"...and nope.
I wasted my breath and should have just left well enough alone.

I like this, it's kind of like a "f**k you, you don't know who I am" type of thing.
mysterious, infuriating, an all-around sarcastic write.

Well done! Not sure if I am worthy enough to attempt to figure you out...I just like being your friend.
