    Standoff, by Venus Connelly
    Staring at each other,
    When ya’ gonna give bother?
    I see your soul.
    You’re digging a bigger hole!
    You take me for fool.
    And use me as a tool.
    Word gets around.
    Get your feet on the ground.
    I try my best:
    with jest.
    You are better;
    than a dead letter.
    Dust it off,
    Don’t scoff!
    You play a deadly game.
    Ending only in flame.
    I am trying to hold your head,
    as tears I shed.
    You resist,
    Look at all you’ve missed.
    You keep going under,
    I can’t keep coving this blunder.
    Look at me and say “it’s not worth a change”,
    And the end I will arrange.
