You were beautiful

By RaheemaFKM

You were beautiful once, before we met, and I showed you all of the ugly things
Hidden behind the camouflage screens, cutting you off from a cancerous world
 
I brought the infection to your door; I injected the truth into your ears
I opened your eyes with a poisonous kiss; I stripped you of innocence and drenched you with guilt
 
You were beautiful once, before we met, and I showed you all of my ravaged heart
Cursed by revenge long overdue, entombed and suppressed by molten regrets
 
I playacted your savior, though you were my salvation
You guarded my faith, though you were my hope
 
I arrested your dreams, but you were my prison
I freed you from them and bound you to me
 
You were beautiful once, before we met, and I kept from the world how exquisite you were
 
You were beautiful once, before we met, and still, even now, I’m unworthy of you
