Forever I am You

You believe me to be an altruistic man as I smile with sneering reluctance. 
You may think me gentle as I extend my hand in goodwill, but degraded am I as I wistfully watch my hand recoil from your filthy phalanges with its foul clutch. 
You wave me off poised as I stand here in this field laden with perennial flowers as they stir aloft, but unbeknownst to you I berate you as you retreat afoot and go forth from my company into the night. 
You deliver beautiful words in my image unto your friends, but I carry your name with seething indiscretion into the fire.
You entitle me as a "friend", but I explicitly fornicate your secrets as I spitefully scathe and scoff unto you.
You divulge your mysteries but I deprecate them and take exception to your standing as I plunge you within rueful nether worlds foreboding in treachery and wretchedness...
Why? For I have no pride unto you.
You place your life you into my palm and recite proverbs appealing for my heart unto yours, but guileful am I and in wicked glee do I carry unto the grave your beauty with its secrets. 
You inscribe me as a "fiancée" into forever without recognising the falsifier whose witness bears mistaken. 
You smile as your recite dreams aforementioned in times bygone, but I chastise you, and your children do I condemn into hell for their fondling fledgling and fornicated perversions.  

You call me a "friend", but I am forever you

    If one can hear the truth so revealed, accept the challenge of the truth, prove it is possible to come clean and change what 'friendship' really means....then in fact becoming worthy of friendship....there may be hope.

    Congrats on your 2nd place win on my "Confessional" contest. The scale of emotions & challenge you present to whomever you're speaking to is full of heart, resilience, & soul. Such a strong craving to embrace clean slates, but not until you get longer willing to stand for incomplete chapters. Fantastic job!

    Benjamin, you evoke some very ominous emotions and imagery. I feel a little of a devil attempting to knock us off balance ... super writing

    Good morning Benjamin, your poem makes me wonder about my own relationship. your poem is great, and provokes every thought in me ,, with your ending line... does that mean you what she has created, or what she wants... ???? i enjoyed your poem...LINDA

    Interesting analogies-- "I am You"-- we forever strive to be just like Him. Thought provoking..
