I watched you in your ivory tower~
Saw the pedestal you put yourself upon.

Gloating in your righteousness~
Imagining you were king of all.

I heard the stones that you cast~
Crumpling those that you aimed for.

The words you used, to put fear in their hearts~
Quick, you were, to be on the defensive.

Your tongue was double-bladed~
Sharp as a razor and cutting so deep.

You expressed it as caring and concern~
Never imagining yourself falling from grace.

Reality, has opened your eyes at last~
Although I could gloat, it isn't worth it.

For you see, I am now my own priority~
And finally, you are no longer an option for me.
