it was like

they knew they could not use

the words shut up

& instead resorted

to anything else

but say those words

disparaging

belittling

undermining

release me I cried out

just let me go

instead of this steady rain

putting me down

sapping my soul

anything but this subversion

say the words dammit

& let me go
