Word of the Day Poem: Gaslight – to manipulate someone by psychological means into questioning their own sanity

Headward Down

Crouching in the marshland
awaiting discovery,
awaiting epiphany.

Here in the stillness
the fog stagnant
the air holding its breath

I close my eyes and open my ears
crimping my lip
and reaching

one palm up
one palm out

certain
you will not gaslight me

again.
