Attack! Attack!

 

A storm is brewing, it’s clear to see

Those clouds are getting near to me.

The warning signs – there is no lack;

My brain is screaming, ‘Attack! Attack!’

Pull up the drawbridge, bolt the door,

Make sure it’s clear to hit the floor.

Secure the windows, pull down the blinds,

Make certain there’s no cracks to find.

Okay, now you can fire away,

Give it your best shot, make your play.

My face is shut, you will not see

If those missiles launched rain down on me.

Stony eyed and cold of expression,

You’ll not know what you scored this session;

I know from any sign of emotional pain

Some kind of satisfaction you will gain.

But it’s now abating, the storm’s blown out,

Nothing left but the odd remaining shout.

Sirens in my brain, they sound ‘All Clear’,

There’s nothing left for me to fear.

Slowly all the locks will open,

The barricades held, there’s nothing broken.

The wounds I’ve taken, buried deep

My own secrets to firmly keep.

Let me make my message clear --

I’ll only shed one single tear.

You'll never know the hurt, the grief,

For I've become reactions thief.
