Reason falls

Reason falls to pride,
hostile jumps to the fore,
Control over anger slides,
And the demon on your shoulder wants more.

Using my isolation as bait
and your insecurity as the trap,
He dismantles what we create
and turns the tight knots slack.

Who wears the tag of victim
is as clear as our logic.
Yet we both let it begin
and make each other frantic.
