Misanthropy

i hate
that what we call society
i will
not give apologies
for my
disgust of humanity
this is
my entirety
darkness
swells inside of me

i’ve bled
too much for you
bit off
more than i can chew
swallow hard
i’ve paid my dues
validated
what is true

i’ve got
nothing else to say
no more
room to play
no soul
to sign away
