And other times, there are too many....
I don't want to walk one more step (with/out you)
Not even one
You rejoice in (my) pain
Revel in (my) isolation
There's something very wrong with all of that (and, you...)
Karma always catches up
Your hubris, a beacon
Glaring through the fog of resentment
Patience is an earned virtue
By the way, so am I....
That which insulates you will end
As all good things must
I wonder if you will feel sad then?
I think I will, regardless
I wanted better for you, you know
How very disappointing it must be
(...that I lived)
You fantasized so often about (my) death
Dreamt of the glories you'd receive
How do you suppose that will now balance out?
I, for one, can't wait to see how this movie ends....
Evil and good are symbiotic
Thankfully, we're not.
Luckily, good things come to those who wait
The wheel of fortune will eventually turn
Where will you be then, I wonder?
I'm just going to sit back
Get some popcorn
Maybe a root beer
Put my feet up
And enjoy the show
Oh, and, before I forget
Stop implying I'm slow...or, don't
Every insult, every abuse, every hardship
Just makes the hole you're burying yourself in deeper
I'm infinitely better
Every single day of the week
You know it
Or, you wouldn't work so hard to hold me down
The first time you rejoiced at (my) pain
The Universe spoke (in sotto voce),
"Fear not, for you shall outlive your enemies, one and all."
Time will tell, eh???
But don't worry...I never will.
