I thought that you were in it

The moment I held so dear

But now that I remember

You were never really here


 Your actions and your words

Never added up at all

So totally incoherent

In the end your mask did fall


Still you lingered deep within me

It didn’t feel like you’d let go

I could tell you still were there  

But in the end I rid you, my foe


As I lay counting my final hours

In retrospect I see

That I never really did rid you

The last laugh is certainly on me
