A Woman

Here I stand
I am looking at you
And not just you alone

My eye bore into all of you
As if I'm looking at nothing at all
Because that is exactly what you
No them
Are. Nothing
I hear your mocking laughter
I see invisibly at your stares
As you gauged my reaction

I start ahead fully aware of what you are
Of what you are trying to do to me
But still I give in
I break down

Show them all my hands
My hands of emotions

Yes for today you have won this fight
But the next time - Well....
Lets just say my power walks in it's silence. .....
