I’ve fought with all my energy

And some borrowed occasionally                  

Sustaining an untenable image of you

That I’ve once held with high esteem

Deferring away from rational logic  

Permitting my trust to formulate

Whom I thought you feigned to be                       

Centered on your exaggerated words

And quotidian miscolored actions

That still brings me regret and pain

Even after all these past torn years               

You’d hope I’d learn nearly nothing

But to your dismay, I assuredly have     

So, when it comes to me undoubtedly

You’ve no power without…my consent
