Barbed

 

A simple blade’s not good enough,

A cut is way too nice;

You’re wanting to inflict more pain

Than an easy slice.

So go find something different,

Go find something barbed,

Then wrap it all around me,

Pull it oh so hard.

You’ll make some lacerations

And some tearing of the skin,

Keep on pulling, nicely

Breaking everything within.

Go on, just keep smiling

As you inflict on me such harm,

No one would believe it

Cause you show to them such charm.

Pulverise my feelings,

Stamp upon my head --

Second thoughts, don’t do that

For you don’t want me dead.

You need me as a victim,

To give your temper some release,

So you can’t afford to go too far

And sentence me to peace.

Your words are like barbed wire

That is tightened round my neck,

I’m just a verbal punch bag

Giving you something to wreck.
