Monsters Wearing Human Skin

You were a one person locus swarm.

Everything about me was razed in seconds.

Those carefully constructed pillars

I balanced my self esteem atop

became rubble,

and I watched you perch atop it,

smile wide and teeth white,

telling me it was better this way.

It wouldn’t do to get above my station.

Daily Post Prompt: Swarm
