Intimidation

 

Intimidation, a reminder without words to make sure I don’t forget,

for if I do you’ll make it into something that I’ll regret.

 

All these threats hang over me, you make them every day,

of course you never mean them, at least that’s what you say

 

once the heat of the moment passes and your anger has been spent.

How has this aggression gone? Where has it been sent?

 

It lurks there in the corners and haunts my shadows every hour,

I know I’ve got to conquer it and take away your power.

 

The things you tell me you want to inflict sometime on me

are way beyond the bounds of any kind of sanity,

 

I don’t back down but stand my ground like I’ve been told to do.

Doesn’t seem no matter what I do I can’t get through to you.

 

All your life I’ve been there doing all that I can do

But I have only failed you – at least that is your view.

 

You hate yourself, you hate your life, you hate me most of all

and you want to make me suffer, you want to make me fall.

 

But there is something that you’re missing, a limit to your power

that makes sure that from these threats I’m never going to cower;

 

the worst that you can do to me is bring this to an end,

if you go and launch an attack I will not bother to defend.

 

I’d let it all be over with, then maybe you will see

that it is not me but you yourself that is your enemy.
