Your Words Cut Like A Knife©

Copyright 2015

By Felina Silver Robinson

Each word you utter cuts through me like a knife

I feel stripped of the desire for life

I feel locked in the darkness of your cruelty

Your laughter at my pain demeans me

So now I will take a stand

Pull myself back up

And bring pride and self-esteem

Back into my heart

Which means

We will now

Have to be

Apart

So take your knife elsewhere

Because you can no longer

Cut into me

With your

Cruel words
