Strength And Weakness

He was pushing my buttons

Trying to get a response

But I so far have kept my cool

He is trying to bait me

Direct me down the path he wants

But I will go my own way

He will not win by luring me

To a place that is to his advantage

But I am tempted to follow

He is trying to seduce me

With all the tricks in the book

But I will not be sucked in

He is giving up with an audible sigh

Not knowing what could allure me

But if he only knew how weak I was finally feeling…
