the fallacy

act, and try to convince yourself.

weave series of excuses,
pulling the threads too tightly.
keep track of it all –
trying to protect you here.

pretend to read minds,
i’m not right for you.
scramble to explain –
i’m selfish, busy, unemotional.

speak over you,
at all times.
can’t pause to let you speak –
might derail the course of action.

it works perfectly: too well, even.
