hate the player

you could say i didn’t respect you,
would it help if I told you that I tried to?
I didn’t mean to hurt you— 
well I guess that’s a lie
I didn’t mean to feel bad about hurting you
Until I realized
that hating the game
instead of the player
makes everyone abuse
their powers later.
I'm no god,
and you’re no mortal.
we’re just beings
craving importance.
we all show our weaknesses
in different ways.
some of us manipulate
without meaning to lie,
some of us believe
and don’t know why.
we play our roles
like characters on screen
to find out everything’s clearer
when you’re out of the dream.
i didn’t love you then
and i don't love you now
and if you need to yell
I'm all ears,
but I hope you haven’t thought about us in years.
I pray someone else dried your tears
