Gathering Ammunition

 

I can see you watching me

Waiting for that slip,

The one to use against me

With a drip, drip, drip.

Any tiny error,

Any small mishap

Will feed in to your reservoir

For you to keep on tap.

Then when you turn that faucet on

You’ll throw it all with force

Trying just to hurt me

With shame, guilt and remorse.

But I’ve a secret weapon,

Somewhere safe that I can hide,

I’ll withdraw inside my head

And stay there for the ride.

Your words they will not hurt me more,

They’ve already done their worst.

My confidence has been destroyed,

My identity has burst.
