You Kissed Me When


You kissed me when, I begged the world,
When I kneeled to it to be kind.
I never mattered, it didn't matter,
For this world was not mine.


This world was everyone's brutality,
For the sake of keeping down humanity.
It brought my humanity to humility.


Whatever I was begging for,
It didn't matter at all.
For whatever puzzle I had to solve,
Didn't work out.


This world is everyone's brutality.
