Before You

All hail the great and powerful
Queen of failure
in the grand archives
of the universe's greatest idiots
she has several volumes
devoted to intriques and deceptions
if something can be done
to sabotage and destroy
willingly or not
I know you are there
standing there smiling at me
shaking your head in disbelief
of all I say
you make it so hard to be angry
do you not believe me?
before you I was-
not who I am now
before you
is a place I wish never to see again
now my failures matter so little
tears never fall for too long
you are still there
holding out a hand to me
inviting me to share
something I did not believe in
before you
