There’s a structure;
It exists it’s on its own.
It exists. Trust me.
I wish you could see…
…The pain inside me.
The Structure is a number
A number is a symbol; which
Represents a substance;
And Substance provides for need.
I am me
What provision meets need?
A substance clear and thick?
Something against you can kick?
A challenge and a crisis?
(What rhymes with crisis?)
Won’t anyone take the time to see…
What’s slowly consuming me?
Substance as a weapon
Used to abuse and to shame;
Stealing your reputation and your name.
The very thing that smiles as you kneel
Naked in the disgrace you feel.
I’ll never forget that look,
You never fucking forsook.
Substance as nothing and absence.
That silence and that smirk,
That “I’m-not-seeing-this” look.
Brings the most violent blow
Rendering substance to flow.
I cringe at your name and your mention
Just the mere thought is mental detention.
Take this for what it’s worth
There’s a structure, it exists.
On its own, it definitely exists.
Trust me, it exists, I wish you’d understand;
You’re nothing but a pawn in its capable hand.
There’s a structure; it exists on its very own;
It exists. I know you see it; to you it’s known.
