Deception

It was big then. But her influence eroded over time.

all that I valued, admired
changed forms
lies pulverised
at the feet of those
I used to abhor
fame scares…

It is history, and history can be rewritten.

interpretations live
neither aspirations
nor actions
I cannot change the world
worlds can change me

What kind of deception is this? You cheated us all along.

I claim my struggles
my experiments with truth
I’m not obliged
to live up to
your expectations
