Pride or vanity

Maybe both

Swollen and sore

Critical words disguised as compliments

Cut deep through core

Killer smile’s able to inflict misery and pain

Turning sunshine to cold drizzly rain

Designed to protect

Minds armoury bulges at seams

Look out positions present and correct

But who can guard against truth telling dreams

Vulnerable, exposed in the open

Having to feel every moment

Shaking upon waking

Denial comes quick

Sergeant Major ego, addresses his troops

“We are invincible, our cause is just”

Perimeter established, ring of steel for a mile

Confidant, important, back in the game

Solitary playtime

Adoration and fame.
