you can't win

I use caution,
she sees it as negativity,
I am slapped

I make a light-hearted joke,
she sees it as cruel,
I am slapped

she wants to know how
I'm able to read people,
how I know who they are,
I teach her my methods,
she reacts poorly and
I am slapped

she asks for my advice,
the unpopular truth,
I give it already knowing
I will be slapped

I show my weakness,
that I am only human,
I am not slapped,
but savagely
beaten

pushed to my limit,
I finally slap her back,
she indignantly responds,
"You can't use your words?"
