Fire Dies

Location

I can feel you grow weaker

As you step inside the class

You use to torment me endlessly

But those days have passed

……………………………………………….

Your soulless stare catches mine

I pull a wicked grin

We both know it’s the end of your time

……………………………………………

I take my seat

I hear you whispering to your friends

I throw you a note that read

‘After class ends”

………………………………………………….

This school is mine

Yet you act like nothing has changed

But I can taste your fear

And how I have your life rearranged

………………………………………………..

The bell has rung and you’re taking your leave

I snatch up my things and push you out of my way

You don’t have anything to say

You stick your nose in the air

You have nothing more to achieve

…………………………………………………

The only reason I dominate now

Is because I have already shown my true colors

For you it’s a never ending charade

I love how no one else knows

That you crawl inside yourself like a cave

………………………………………………….

I can’t do anything more than pity

Your made up life

Just looking at you makes me sad

You’re actually no better than anyone

Shouldn’t you be so glad?
