To Say of Nothing

Back me not into a corner;
For I will kick and scratch and bite.
Give me not a route to run;
For I will flee and never fight.

Pay me not your best attention;
For at best I find words fickle.
Judge me not upon my actions;
For I do not command a sickle.

Give me not your trust;
For my will is changing always.
Fear me not upon my actions;
For I will not invade your hallways.

Give me not your love;
For I will find myself recluse’d.
Treat me not as a coy stranger;
For I will end up lonely, scared, and used.

Treat me not as you would your family;
For when I come close I hurt you most.
Leave me not without your bounty;
For without you I’m a ghost.

Tell me not of all my nots;
For they are the only thing I know.
Keep me not as one around you;
For it is best for me to go.
