I Never Wanted To Be


I never wanted to be just your shadow.
I never wanted to be at your feet.
I never wanted to be an application
of light bent through your prism.
I never wanted to be just a concept to your rotten meaning.
I never will be your dirty pretty,
or an ordinary woman.
I never wanted to be your twisted mindset.

I knew when I met you,
that you were vain,
and reflected off me.

You are but a mirror after all.
