theodora (X)

in those days their blood was still warm
before i began to learn
how to mould them into perfect beings
devoid of all the traits
that had made their predecessors burn&crash

in those days their tongues were still alive
before i began to learn
that love begets jealousy begets hate begets pity begets
all that i had sworn myself to cast away
into the deep ends of the earth

in those days their eyes were still filled with fire
before i began to learn
that those bridges called beauty would erode
that the purest of all can crumple into the twisted of all
in one simple second

in those days i was truly happy
before i began to learn
that i was making an image of myself
looked into the mirror and realized
i had not met up to my own creation's standards.
