I told the enemy too much
Showed him every card
Exposed the hand I’d been dealt
His technique avant-garde

Slithering slipperily he slipped by
My security system disabled
Burned out at both ends

My resistance tabled

Granted him VIP access
To what some may call
A private hell
Informing an informant
An impostor
A sleeper cell

Every talk you ever had
Whether by pillow, pen or post
Held for ransom
Leveraged against you
Time released to hurt you the most

And what about your own mouth
How you disqualify yourself
Long before you move forward
Fear keeps your gifts on the shelf

You rehearse every negative feeling, emotion and thought
Letting it run wild in your mind
Rehearsing the pain of every battle fought
Taking pleasure in cherishing every lie

Must be the way it’s…
