Happy Now?

 

Things have not gone quite to plan,

No, things have worked out wrong;

You’re getting really wound up

With your emotions running strong.

 

No control comes in to play,

Someone’s gonna have to pay,

No matter what I have to say

All self-control has gone astray.

 

You’re lashing out, intend to hurt,

Flailing with your hands and fists;

I’m not gonna back away from you,

I’m a target you can’t miss.

 

You’re intent on your attack,

I’m not retreating when you smack,

Compassion’s something you do lack

But I’ll not let you beat me back.

 

Just get it over, do your worst,

You now stop and then refrain,

But the damage now has all been done,

It won’t be gone again.

 

I’ll keep the tears out of sight,

Deny the voice that’s shouting ‘flight’.

Giving in? Well, no not quite

But losing all the will to fight.

 

But realise this, it’s not forgotten,

Not forgiven but stored away.

The future holds much more of this

But I cannot simply walk away.
