Thief 

I know who you are 

You are a soul taker 

A word raper 

Thief of dreams 

Wake up call 

Unapologetic 

Worst nightmare 

I have never met you 

but I see now 

what makes the world 

an ugly place 

It’s you 

Ripping humanity’s face off 

with your hands 

that smell filthy 

like money 

or with your eyes 

that look like murdered dreams

Let everyone follow you 

until the end of the road 

where it looks like selfish 

kept your secret for way too long

It’s lonely there 

and everyone is laughing 

at you
