I cannot abide selfishness

scratch scratch
niggle niggle
bitch and snicker
your knife slides across my back
I can feel the sharp blade
goose bumps slip up and down my spine
You don’t stab, you tempt and threaten
the door is shut
slammed
you laugh in my face
you laugh at my troubles that churn my stomach and overturn my mind
what was pinks and reds are now blacks and icey blues
snick snick
slide
the breeze is cold, despite the beating sun
the wall is there
I have no way to climb
I shut, switch off
creak creak swish
your footsteps create fear
this is not as it should be
I thought I knew
but you have proved me wrong
at least in doing that, I’ve made you happy
