Defenceless – Michael Harris

It served for a time
but not any more –
it thwarts me now.

It muddled thought
but not any more –
I see clearly now.

It dampened emotion
but not any more –
I feel my feelings.

It dulled sensation
but not any more –
I’ve come to my senses.

It doubted intuition
but not any more –
I trust my gut now.

It offered protection
but not any more –
it endangers me now.

It served for a time
but not any more –
life serves me now.
