Words cut deeper than the knife we wield,
They will often break thru our emotional shield.
Why bother to use a weapon from the start,
When a well placed word will break my heart.
A wound will heal in time so they say,
But a verbal dagger cut will never go away.
Why choose a bullet to destroy my brain,
When a well chosen word, will drive me insane.
How can I love you when your words besiege?
Deeper than any sword or knife could reach.
Even tho nothing of what you say is real,
Try as I might these wounds will just not heal.
So it is with survival in mind that I must say
You need to leave me to die and go away
