Fight like a man

Lurking in the shadows of a darkened night You’ll find a man hiding behind a mask of disguise. Charming and witty is his game But heart ache and pain is what he brings. A smooth talker and manipulator of love. Sets you up from the start. Knowing exactly what he wants He goes after the weak and innocent ones. Not much of a man he would be Without the mask he so needs. Sly and clever he thinks he is. But doesn’t he realize they are only words written. No action can come of this man. All he can do is smear your name. Im not afraid of what you’ll do. I am curious to see if you’ll follow through. So here is your time to shine like a man. Put up your dukes I coming in. We will see who wins this round. Does he have the balls?

    Cory, it is expedient to say at times when the man unveils he ends up being our true image. Excellently, you have unmasked the image. Kudos.

    it's good that you let everyone know about him, Cory. I had no idea he was this way but then again, he has never said much to me. In the few soupmails I had with him, he just seemed normal to me. sorry for how he mistreated you.

    Cory I am so sorry that you have experienced as awefulness here of all places. Your poem says it all. I hope you can heal with your friends and keep writing your feelings rather than keeping them inside.
