Emotional Muggers


An Emotional Mugging

is calling up your family
expecting an earful
but getting
an exploding doormat  instead.

is thinking your friends
have your best interests
in mind and finding they’ve
relished eating your heart out.

Emotional muggers
know something
nasty about you
and aren’t afraid to use it.

Emotional muggers
can cripple you
with their love.
