Do you remember how you gloated
In my face when you claimed my beloved
Recall my pain every morning as I woke
Hoping it’s a dream only to be suckerpunched
I so fear loving and holding
Because you don’t mind snatching
To your cruelty I’ve lost chances
Of a last word, hug, last gift.
I have so little left
My small circle of family and friends that I love with depth
Look at me and see the joy I get at seeing smiles on their faces
Share in my pain when they hurt
Rejoice with me when I celebrate their victorious races.
Here is a deal.
Get some nice clothes and come out here
Tip: the Devil wears Prada.
Your move: Versace maybe?
Go on dates, create a business empire
Join some clubs, make friends
Share your life with them
Do you wish to lose them?
Here is the typed contract.
Sign here………and here…….
When it expires,
We’ll pose the question
Has humanity been installed in you?
I win. I get to keep my loved ones.
You win. I get to understand why you do it.
