Feeling Insecure

by Temptress

I actually felt an emotion
of being insecure
I acted very badly
and very immature

The man I was with
had the nerve to flirt with another
Right in front of my face
as though I was like his mother

It didn't seem to bother him
or was it he just didn't care
There was tension all around the room
I felt it in the air

I did however learn
a valueable lesson that day
To never let him make me feel
insecure in any kind of way

I do have my pride
and most of all my self respect
But what he did that day
was politically incorrect

Next time it happens
I will turn the other cheek
Not a sound will come from me
Not even the first peep

And when there is no one else around
don't try to cover your ass
I know what you are about now
you have no fucking class

Just be happy with who you are with
and know what they are worth
Because doing stupid things like that
Truely do hurt.

I've been guilty of such thoughtlessness, though maybe not as bad, and got my ass kicked- deservedly so too!
I think the words flowed with the emotion really well- very pleasant to read and built to a logical conclusion. Too right! Never let anyone take your pride- I reckon they're just bullies if they want to anyway, take care, spence

    I would have accepted an appology instead, but I see how it is and maybe how you would feel when it happens to you. Thanks for your honesty.
