Lost Gleam of Self-Esteem

When at first we met, I was drawn to your high self-esteem. So many goals, you were aiming high and you dared to dream. Thanks to me, you've been awakened to your present state. Your weakened mind is unable to depict any emotion, be it love or hate. I began mocking you, the frustration was so unbearable you broke down and became depressed Now, you couldn't even last a week without me your mind in a state of utter distress. Can you even look back to when you were a portrayer of clean living and good health? You used to think up such nonsense you were just deluding yourself. Sometimes I think maybe I've gone too far when I watch you during my little episodes of self-denial. I'm just growing bored as I watch you sitting there calmly rocking, with your blank stare and ungleaming smile.
