you bend me

you bend me
and i become all that you’d have me be
you try me
and i prove that i am loyally yours
you hate me
and i turn the other cheek
because if you knew the truth
if i told you what you really are to me
how much i love you
loathe you
you would blow away in a gale of your own self importance

i wonder if you will ever understand
that the power you have over me
comes not by way of your strength
nor by your innate ability to tear me down to nothing with a few words
the only real power you have over me
is the sincere love that i have for you
