Defenseless Pray

Abrasive not bold
Adjectives flung like dung
Mincing words
Taking my inventory

Only you know my heart
Outside judgments fail
Nothing muddles your truth
You are my defender

Brash and brazen
The accusations flew
Sizing me up
One down on the ladder

You know the score
Heart cracked open
I long to please you
Complete surrender

So I'm brusque
Dullard and no fun
Got my number
You're spreading the word

Standing on solid ground
My tank's full
Accountable to you
You are my bottom line

--Shenandoah Lynd
