You speak softly, but listen not,
You're a drug, a narcotic of the worst form,
Infinite pleasure bringing infinite pain,
Who are you to entice me with suffering?
You scream and silence all but yourself,
You blind me to the truth,
Lies laced with fact,
Who are you to dictate reality?
Your singing fills the air,
You hypnotize with melody,
The careless leading the ignorant,
Who are you to run my life?
You stop speaking when I listen most,
You're a coward without loyalty,
A coup at the precise moment,
Who are you to lead and abandon?
A drug, a lie, a careless being, a traitor?
My closest ally?
I've found you, but cannot uproot you.
Lead on, friend.
I'm just curious as to what you think of it. To whom or what is the poem referring?
