A Warning

I feel your eyes on me constantly, piercing and salivating. My every movement is tracked, scanned for any sign of hostility or aggression.

Guys like you are weak individually, so the Law of Large Numbers becomes your superpower, the gigantic group your failsafe.

You hate me because I refuse to backdown, neglect to carry myself with pitiful timidity like the members of your little peanut gallery do when your alliance is reduced to its constituents come morning light.

The awakening sun reveals your weakness, dissolving your manicured threats and exposing your hollow hearts.

 None of you know real darkness, the abyss growling malevolently from the depths of despair, seeking to devour you every waking hour.

Your collective has no inkling of the paranoia and alertness that afflict you when you have to remain in fighting shape simply because survival requires it.

Eventually, you exist as iron and stone simultaneously, anything warm or gentle in your soul dying as it's iced and cemented over by harsh reality and unforgiving experience.

 Tonight, your friends saved you from swallowing your fucking teeth. Thank them, because Im beginning to come unhinged again.

Next time, you're dead. All of you.

Looking back, though there was nothing that indicated what he would do to me, I now find it odd that he showed so much extra attention towards me. In the days prior, when all of the kids played whatever trivial games we dreamed up, he would go out of his way to ruin my fun. I remember one instance where we were playing Heads Up 7-Up or something similar, and though my head was down, he stopped the game and said that I was peeking at the other players, something banned by the rules. "No I didnt!", I protested. "Yeah you did, I seen you!", he'd reply mockingly. My two front teeth stuck out prominently due to a mix of bad genetics and awkward dental work, and I told one of my other cousins, in jest, that I'd gladly trade my teeth for hers. We laughed, until I heard him behind us.…

That I'm saving/
Others from suicide, through these/
Lines clueing/
You into divine music/
And to my detractors/
Reacting/
In deep packs of/
