    Play me; go on and play me.
    Tell me you’ve done nothing,
    then I find out you have.

    Delude me; subdue me.
    Lie to me, and use me.
    Swear I am mistaken,
    then live with the bad.

    Protest and threaten.
    Object and accuse.
    You must live
    in your own skin.
    Ashamed, belittled
    and bemused.

    You wear your self-pity
    like a stole that should fit.
    Thinking that the others
    do not see right
    through it.

    So very well written...I particularly appreciate the rhythm and rhyme in the third stanza.

    Also, know you are cared about. :hug:
