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


So take your knife elsewhere

Because you can no longer

Cut into me

With your

Cruel words
