i am a

lonesome, deathly creature,

without remorse or empathy or

a heart

(i'd like to say they

cut it out, but that would be a lie,

i never had one)

i am a judge of moral character,

yet my own is so flawed that

it's brittle, dusty,

crumbling at the slightest touch & i'm

despicable,

a demon,

but i hide it well.
