Words as a Weapon

The sharp steel blade of a sentence

The hissing words soon to detonate

Using language to bludgeon and kill

The hate lingers in the air; the impact resonates

The impact of your choice of words can last for years,

Can rip out a heart, can put self-worth in the basement

Can tear apart carefully-constructed defenses,

Where they hide behind indestructible casements

Your laughing echoes on and on and on

Long after the pain should be over and done

There's no getting away, they can't hide

Can't get away from memories; there's nowhere to run
