I am not your mother, or your
lover, I will not forgive you your
mistreatment of me simply because
you are “one of the good ones.”
Prove it. On your own accord, take
responsibility for your words.
I am not the little girl who once let
men sharpen their claws against
her skin. You are no match, I assure
you, for the indifference I now carry
for men who do not have the nerve
to take responsibility for their words.
