Jibe – Sunday 26th September 2010


each jibe
i take with a twisted smile
i know
they will keep coming
i have to play that role
it is not enough
to keep that private
i have to be reminded
the acceptance is still required

each jibe
i am used to
though i should never accept
but i do
because i know of the damage done
the failed attachments
the systemic abuse
i know where it comes from

each jibe
is another blow
it is not exactly a punch
but it may as well be
when will they stop the kicking
and punishment of me
it is no surprise
i know,
and i wait
for the next insult to fly in
