"There is no great genius without a mixture of madness."-Aristotle

I thought I could help you find your sanity;
Instead I found you're a taint to humanity.
Every sliver of happiness you made me feel was fake.
Involving myself with you was my biggest mistake.

Everyone deserves a second chance,
But you didn't deserve the first.
Resume wallowing in your pessimists trance,
As you suck the life from us with your vicious thirst.

You're a lying, cheating disgrace to man,
And at the first glimpse of love, you turned and you ran.

The author's comments:
This, like most of the poems I write, was writted at a time when I was really down on myself and everyone around me. It could be about a lot of people that have been in my life, so it isn't about just one person. It's reffering to bad friends and relationships in general.
