Poem - Power

Power

To know that I can say a few words,
And by saying them, I can destroy you,
Not because those words were said,
But, because I said them to you.

That is the power I hold over you.


Then to realize that I never will say them,
My heart which hurts if another harms you,
Would break if it knew that I be the cause,
Of a single tear of pain in your eyes.

That is the power you hold over me.


Your whip, you’ve handed to me willingly,
Mine you do hold with my consent,
Both of us know that neither will use it.
And we go on as a willing slave to the other.

That is power we hold over each other.
