Not by your harsh dissection of me nor your ridiculing judgment of my actions or inactivity;
but by the breath of life skills soaring effortlessly through my lungs.
I am reminded.
I am a song unsung; your chords will not shackle me.
You’ll continue to destroy and search hidden mysteries of me; unable to solve puzzling complexities of my verse.
You will try because you can not help yourself.
You will try because you do not know yourself.
You will try because you do not love
Your tries do not offend me.
And this you find offensive.
I am reminded;
(a poetic reminder for those of us dealing with toxic people.)
Poison only kills if you consume it.
