Favorite Quote:
"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us." Pride and Prejudice


My skin crawls,
As your presence draws near.
I fear you,
I flee you.
Do I even exist?

Follow the leader,
So this is the game we play?
You are the pack leader,
I, the lone wolf.
Do I even exist?

You stalk onto the scene,
Your pack close behind.
Chilling howls fill the air,
As you prepare to strike.
Do I even exist?

Your hateful glare cuts through the darkness,
Destroying your enemies…
Destroying me.
Do I even exist?

You were manipulating me from the start,
Were you not?
What am I in your eyes?
Do I even exist?

When I fell,
You pushed me down even further.
Your air of malevolence,
Chokes me.


Even as I crash against the wall,
You stand with a smirk.
Why am I here,
Following in your footsteps?

You slash through my skin,
Your claws newly sharpened.
You’ve seen me break,
Yet you continue relentlessly.

Black and blue I stand,
Refusing to give in any longer.
Sick of the torment,
I will not conform…
Not again.

You’ve marked me with your brand,
I was once your slave.
The proof will forever remain, yet,
You no longer exist.

You can call my name,
Scream it out to the world.
I will not answer.
You no longer exist.

I am dead to you,
As you are to me.
The bitterness I once held,
Has vanished.
I bear no harsh feelings,
For I have moved on.
I am stronger than…even you,
Now.
So, shatter.
You
No
Longer
Exist
