Talking To Myself

Never have I met such an insolent being
With venom in the words she spits
And thoughts that seep toxin from her pores
Without a consult she begins to berate
Finding issue in the very breath that I breathe
Too loud, too odorous or simply too often
She is programmed to find every fault in me
And only now that I have awakened
Do I see the damage she is doing to me
With a force built of many attempts and fails
But threaded with an iron will to succeed
I keep telling that woman in my reflection
That she may not speak ill of me
