a villain is just a victim [poem]

a villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told
so let’s tell yours
the story of how you befriended the weird ones
people whose stripes matched your own
the kind who become chosen family
closer than blood
that’s how you found it
in the face of a friend
you lost love too
finding abandonment and betrayal
from those your trusted most
so you learned
not to love so much
not to feel so deeply
drunken hands and lips and moans
the only truths you could accept between hearts anymore
you pushed away feelings
emotional baggage
good or bad
it didn’t matter
you just ran
you always run and that
my dear
is how you became the villain in your last lover’s story
the empty kisses and callous words you left behind
turning her into the same hollow monster
you’ve already become
