Words that hurt and fear instill,

Words unkind; words that kill.

Words that leave me feeling broken,

Words I wish remained unspoken.

 

Things he says without a care,

Words that hurt beyond compare.

Is this a debt; is this a price?

I wish I could desensitize.

 

The words he says are aggravating,

Am I perhaps exaggerating?

Is this his wish; is this a thrill?

To say the words, he knows will kill.
