false raven

i kept noticing
the parts of you
were parts of me
altered to fit
the ongoing persona
you kept presenting
for appearances
while i faded
into the background
as the version of you
kept picking appealing pieces
that gauged intrigue
from the selfish crowd
who would abandon
on the first ill sign
your priorities lie
on creating a perfect you
from the broken people
who fell into view
unfortunate for them
to be undone by you
