"Once more," they asked me.
They asked with those simple words.
"Once more," they said again.
The words climbed up my throat,
but never left.
Their greedy mental hands pushed and pulled,
struck left and right.
It started to burn,
My head spun as I took a step back,
anger, sadness, frustration, and madness
they rose up my throat
with those first words.
But this time
they gave me power.
"No!" I yelled.
"NO!" I stated, "NEVER AGAIN!"
Though I had only said three words.
They gave me power.
Power to tell the there will be no "Once More".
