Please let me finish
You speak, I listen To the sound of My voice disappearing under the weight of your suit. A breadth of peacock feathers Yet I’m the one on show. I walk home, silent. Shamed. Abused.
I repeat. Please Don’t take my words and twist them. Anger fires in hot red cheeks. I breathe and calmly speak. Yet I’m Unreasonable. Difficult. Words that don’t come from me.
