Nemesis

I really ought not
to have enemies:
There's light in my soul, friend, but I fear
There's a cloud of darkness in my heart
and my intent.
But HE is a human being-
In every way deserving of the-
"Deserving?" growls my scarred simulacrum-
"He has taken --everything-- from you!
He deserves only
punishment!"
Yes... everything...
He has stolen my influence
my pride
and worst of all he has
...her.
And when I look in his eyes
I see myself, only
twisted with baleful hamartia
and in that dark mirror
I see my
revenge.

I enjoyed the style this was written in. I liked how the dialogue was interjected... like thoughts within thoughts. I did however get confused at the end as to whether or not the speaker was talking about someone else or talking about himself, as in his own flaws. Overall me like :]
