I’ve Compromised To Nothing
I stood open before you;
One could not have been more true.
But you didn’t want to see
To your tune, I danced and stripped
Off my skin.
I morphed into your dream; a nobody.
I gave in and passed out.
I compromised and finally died.
Now I’m ugly; a ghost maybe.
And for every thousand words I say,
Your grateful silence retorts: “Away from me!”
I wish I could find Me
And live again.
But there’s nothing left of Me.
I’m now your dream; this thing
Sitting at your feet.
What more do you need?
Speak and I’ll be,
I’ll makeup to your picky,
Until I can wake up to the true Me.
