From both angles i stare
From one angle you talk
I see every detail
Every, last, unfolding detail emerges as my other personality moves to a new viewpoint.
You don't notice.
I don't care.
Each time you try and tempt me, i see it coming.
Each time you try and hurt me, i see it coming.
Each time you believe you have one step in front of me, i chase miles in front of you.
You do care.
You will care.
Because the truth always catches up on a person, and i am the one winning the race.
I know the true you,
What will happen when the part of me who sees your faults alerts my blind front i wear for you?
Will i choose to know the true you That i already knew?
Or will i hide it Like you programmed my brain to slowly do?
