Shakespeare of us

I stand in amazement as I watch you
Metamorphize,
Using the analogy of feeling like
A blanket, a mere comfort
You besmirch what is left of us.
I consider offering a compromise,
Even selling you a marketable
Version of us,
But by your
Deafening discontent
I know every word is meant,
And more:
You are drugged by your
Supposedly impartial truth.
I am not invulnerable, you stand
Bloodstained, accused of
Premeditated crime,
But as a moonbeam catches your eye
I become witness to your barefaced Radiance and so I fetch some
Luggage
And participate in the assasination
Of
Us.
