Cruel Intentions

Did you try to mold my mind with your structure to create the student you were not? Did you attempt to test my knowledge to prepare me for the politics of confusion I will face? Did you use your sarcasm to prepare me for the dark manner many will express to me? Did you use disapproval to teach me insecurity in my relations? What was your purpose?

Did you use deception to test my intuition? Did you use writing to distract my mind from what my eyes were observing? Did you use intimacy because you had no other way to connect? Did you use your intellect and creativity to impress? What were your objectives?

Did you use your affluence as bait to attract your partners? Did you use the company of others to make you feel more secure? Did you use your marriage as a tool to move up the corporate ladder? Did you use my family as a front to hide your superficiality? What were your goals?

Did you hide behind your groups because you were afraid to be alone? Did you raise your voice in desperation? Did you use your activities to escape from your responsibilities? Did you use titles to distract from the skills you lack?

Your words were misguided and your intentions cruel.
