My Word- Against Yours

I made this right when I woke up, written in a notebook by my bed. All I remember is it had to do with my dream. This is my first time posting a poem, as I usually save them for the book I’m publishing (I don’t wanna deal with copyright and permissions etc)
But this one is strange, and I thought I better publish something as I’ve been talking about it for forever. So here’s my first poem on here- My word- against yours. It’s sort of short, but the meaning is there and deep.

You’re corrupt, it’s not hard to see
Poison the waters that drain from me
You lie to her, and blame the silence
She may be alone, but her name’s defiance

You can’t tell her who not to be
I’ll side with her, your word against me
If you try to break her, to steal her spirit
My word against yours, the last time you’ll hear it

Awww thanks Maddy. Yeah I think I’ll keep it as my word against yours- it’s sounds a lil cliche but as you said it says what it means to me. Thanks for helping me ❤️

I like the name just how it is. Because it speaks what the poem is about and what it means to you. That's just my opinion but if you change it I'm sure everyone will still love it ❤️😊

Been thinking, and although I won’t change the official name on here, I may call it corrupt instead. Whichever has a better ring to it- tell me! Haha
