Indifference

If you lash out at me
I withdraw
I go quiet
I don’t fight back
I let you vent
Form your own opinions
Say whatever you want
But the side effect
Is my respect
Is chipped away
Little by little
Bit by bit
Until personal attacks
Make me ill
Physically
In the stomach
And my feelings
Die a slow
Painful death
Then one day
They no longer exist
