Resisting You

I fight your charm with
these bitter lines,

I cut my eye at
your sweet voice and
hold my chin up high,

doing good suppressing
the poison that
you inject into me,

perhaps you think I’m
sullen and hostile
or perhaps you see,

there’s love behind this
bitter frown and there’s
warmth behind these eyes,

there’s weakness beneath
these walls I wear and there’s
loneliness trying to hide,

as I battle against your
sweetness, you see this dark
part of me,

revealing itself in
defensive ways cos I’m
afraid of where I want be.
