Daggers

 

A stockpile you’ve got,

those lethal daggers,

ready to throw, to hurl,

to hit and maim.

Calmly, you lift one,

lick along it’s blade

all the while,

staring at me.

Venomous coated

with saliva of hatred,

they’re lethal enough

but they’ve yet to be baited.

Words,

so cruel,

so vicious.

Each blade is loaded,

made more sharp;

ready to fling

straight at my heart.

Your aim not perfect,

that’s better for you,

torture extended

maiming,

claiming

the last

remaining bits

of my

sanity.
