Double Blow

 

When you aimed that verbal punch

you knocked me to the floor;

with facts so unexpected

you mangled up my jaw.

Your words, they made me speechless,

could not think of what to say,

with no love lost between us

it was a game that you could play.

But then there came a second blow,

delivered hard on both my sides,

the pain of it’s still ringing

as the thoughts they still collide.

She might have been much younger

but she sure could hit out hard;

her words were so well sharpened

they were like a bladed shard.

A triple shock has grounded me

and I’m so short of hope

that there’s any single kind of way

in which I can now cope.

So isolated, all alone,

no one can really understand

the level of betrayal

that you dealt me with your hand.
