tissue paper

i have a
knack
for finding
a logical
reason that
stands up
to scrutiny
to explain
my irrational
need to hide

my ingrained
fear of
failure along
with a
predilection
for anxiety
give me a
near superpower
in justification

and so i hide
ignoring the
petty nagging cuts
giving my
peace of mind
willingly to
avoid finding
how little
my feelings matter
but self aware
in my denials

a tissue paper
suit of armor
for a failed
knight with a
terminal sense
of chivalry
hiding from the
dragons that
grow only angrier
with every new
logical fallacy
magically spun
