[485] The Harsh Truth

The creation of a downfall⁣
Self-sabotage for the wicked⁣
A mirrorless reflection⁣
lies in the space between⁣
Grappling for truth or⁣
grappling for you ⁣
It doesn’t matter to ⁣
find in vain the real you⁣

Bones crackle to delude⁣
the path of the wicked ⁣
Mist follows their vision⁣
as smoke consumes the⁣
cloud that rains acid ⁣
The feelings land on a ⁣
rainless path of infertile emotion⁣

Lack of guile⁣
The turning of the wicked⁣
The reflection reveals its artifice⁣
A void that stares back at you⁣
A past that writes the future⁣
A future that hides your truth⁣
A truth that evades to ⁣
save you from the real you
