Chlorine

Your words are like deadly chlorine gas,

Entering my body and poisoning me.

Blackening my soul as I struggle to breathe,

You take more joy from every gasp for air.

Your words are like a deadly dose of mercury,

Forced down my throat by your silver spoon.

It stuck out of your mouth the day you were born,

You grew up spoilt, conceited and cruel.

Your words are like chlorine,

Choking me from the inside.

Someday my friend,

You will pay the price.

Lyria
