Why do I hide when you come to call? What is it in me that cowers away? I know you mean well, But I’m afraid to let you in I don’t want to get hurt all over again I don’t have anything left to shred You’ve taken all of me Every last bit You’ve scarred…

Can I Keep You?

A Dirty Game of Tug-of-War

A game of tug-of-war Is raging inside my being, within my psyche Two halves of the same person Fighting to overcome the other The battle is dirty The battle is gritty Neither side giving an inch to the other Pulling, yanking harder Pushing, stepping farther Unrelenting in their efforts Striving to be the focus of…
