When you write things down, they sometimes take you places you hadn’t planned.

Today you have nothing but
respectful silence
to use against me.
I've nothing for which to feel
or self-hatred;
I just sat and listened.
Sat, nodded, and listened.
“Yes, you're right–”
the nod implied–
“I'm such a fool.
My, I should change!
Change my dark ways!”
My heart's at peace,
though I've not budged
or changed who I am.
This time you have nothing
but silence.
