You Don’t Own That Kind of Power

He sits back in his chair

Taking in a long, deep breath

Thinking he has finally gotten to her

Because this write is most certainly about him.

It declares a heartbreak!

Then remembering someone from the past

She is certain would never have hurt her.


But it isn’t about him;

It is just a write

Like all the others

He was just hoping

His ruse

Finally worked.


Another relishes in her pain

Hoping she will write another

About how much it hurt

But he can’t seem to find one

He has to go back months

Even years.


Some are waiting to see

How broken they made you

Others are hoping

That their lie

Caused you turmoil.


Yet none of us have the power

To truly break someone

When they know

Your game

Before you even begin

To play it.
