When I start a sentence
With “I feel”
You retreat so fast
That I wonder
How many casualties you had in our last battle.
I’m unaware of your defenses
Alert, ready to counter the attack
I didn’t know I started.
“Lonely” is the word
At the end of my sentence
But that’s not the word you heard.
You were too busy collecting ammunition
To hear the feeling,
The important part.
Ready – Set – Blame – Fire!
I drop the desperate white flag,
Wondering why I got shot.
