Pride

Both our heads held high
None backing down
None letting up
No first moves
No compromises

Our pride
Like a clot in the blood vessels to our hearts
Blocks out the oxygen
Reducing life
Reducing love

Messages do not get through
They bounce back
As if a wall stands in between
Nothing gets in
Nothing gets out

I’m waiting
Waiting for it all to evaporate
Evaporate to nothingness
No memory of it all
No traces

The heart wants to reach out
The head blocks out everything
Gridlock
Nothing moves
Stuck

Pride that makes us so proud
None wants to lose
But both the loser in the end
And we both fall
Fall apart
