My Mind Gasps

In Response To Daily Prompt – Dramatic

Here it comes

I see it before it starts

My mind gasps, doors primed to shut

Waiting for the words to pour

A river of nonsensical

Speeding tirades

Spewed without consideration

Of my equanimity

I cringe and smile

Hoping she sees my repulsion

At words trampling all over my sanity

My calm

What a drama queen

I understand

It’s your  insecurities, inadequacies

What a tragedy

Oh lord, help me!

Give me patience

I try so hard

But it’s wearing thin my mental stamina

The door finally shuts
