I Shut Down: A Poem

You explain to me how you are right

I shut down

You are wrong, but I don’t want to fight

I shut down

You spit the words in my direction

I shut down

I was clearly sitting in the “no arguing” section

I shut down

You want to know if I am mad

I shut down

My eyes should show you just a tad

I shut down

You act like the victim in this one-sided talk

I shut down

Kiss my ass as I’m starting to walk

I shut down

wearing a frown

sitting on the ground

hearing no sound

you’re not around

now I have found

no need to shut down.

      kj force, no this is someone I'm with right now. Well, he is my one and only forever and ever because I told him that if we ever split, I would be forever alone! Too much crap to deal with and I'm not a crap dealer!

      I read this to him and he knew exactly what I was talking about! This is the majority of our arguments. He says the wrong thing and I pout! I don't argue, I just shut down and shut everyone out!

      Thanks for the comment!

Although even in a now relationship, we can sometimes feel this way...ahhh.. relationships, now there's a subject we need to cover, I call it " learning to talk with your mouth shut"..just my thoughts...keep'em coming girl...
