Messiah Complex

I loved playing with the ideas in my head of people who all loved each other.

I did not understand why I did that so frequently but now I understand I wish I did not.

You see, even in my fantasies it was not me being loved.

So, you ask me why I feel deserted or so defensive.

Well, it’s because I couldn’t even imagine myself being loved.

And I know it is not your fault, but sometimes I still tell myself it is.

That you did it intentionally because you hated me.

But I do not think it was me that you hated.

Because I know how I reminded you of people you could not change and I know that makes you angry enough that you cannot stand me being myself because it feels like a constant reminder of your failed manipulations.

But did it have to be you?

Did I have to be afraid of you?

I never wanted for things to end with way, but when you set our bridge on fire I walked away because I know I couldn’t contain the blaze.

Do you think about me, other than when you are comparing me to Judas who betrayed Jesus?

Do you hope that I kill myself over you like Judas did over Jesus?

Since you see yourself as nothing less than a messiah.

If you are supposed to be Jesus then how come it was so hard for you to love me?

It’s time for me to stop asking questions I know you can’t answer.

Though, I cannot find it in me to want to listen to you anyways.

I see now that it does not matter if it was you I had to divide from.

Back then I felt like a devoted monk leaving their religion behind.

Though now I know that you were never a god to begin with.

Are you able to understand that yet?
