sentry of shame

shame
she looms large upon the threshold
and wields
her weapon of destruction
annihilating invitations
with her cold machete
of reproach
entrance granted only
to those who can survive
the pressure
of her blade of steel
cutting remarks
remove appendages
one by one
as she enumerates my failures
till i am left incompetent
as she sees me
unable and unworthy
to hold love
her mutilation justified
for she cannot allow
love to come inside
