and tonight i’ll fight in my corner

kicking and demeaning

in order for others not to follow

because i know

it’ll hurt more when they’ll come to know all of –

and these things will take time

to be led out of that corner

where all the disparaging thoughts would linger

and self-esteem was food for fodder

but the desperation read plainer than iced breath across lips:

give me love
