how powerful.
to have people salivating on their phone screens
scrolling and begging for more-
you really know me, don't you?

how enthralling.
to have the ability to lurch the world
from its back-breaking axis and shift the stars
your words are more than mine could ever be

how breathtaking.
to have the orchestra staring at your painted nails
as they dip and dive and command, control music
to think that you once attempted to play the violin... your talents were elsewhere!

i am none of those things
only insecure
each compliment has a double meaning
each compliment is a threat...

you really know me, don't you?
your words are more than mine could ever be
to think that you once attempted to play the violin... your talents were elsewhere!


never say that to a person with no talents.
