cultivating emotions with apathy

speak clearly or they'll cut you down
pretty as they are
any cornered animal learns to become a predator
waiting to rip you to shreds
before you can do so to them
whether or not you'd have ever considered it

 choose your words carefully, without emotion
feelings have no place in this exchange
it's a battle of wills testing the strength of your resolve
testing your motivation to continue or walk away

i have a tendency to stay too long
i have a tendency to try too hard
i have a tendency to think i can win

because it's too terribly sad to think that nobody wins
