I AM the Wise Man

“This Is How You Remind Me”
Running through my head
Over and Over
Unstopping.

The lyrics
Bring back
All I wished to bottle
I can’t stop it.
So I embrace it

The red hot anger.
Bottled in my gut.
I see it in him.

The clash of hand meeting lockers
Grace my unwilling ears.
I hide my battle marks.
Between my ex and me.

How I was planning on using him
As a pawn
When the day started

It worked

He used his anger
For exactly what I wanted him to.

The violence against
The evil monster
Who roams the halls
And terrorizes the girls.

I am the wise man…
Too wise.
I kept him prisoner
Until the tears came.

No news.
No news if there was a fight…
…if anyone was hurt.

I am too wise.
He did EXACTLY
What I wanted him to do…

But at what cost?
