    Sticks and stones may break my bones
    but words will kill me every time…

    You slanderer!
    You may as well have taken a gun
    and shot me with a hollow point through my heart
    because I couldn’t be any more dead
    than I am right now

    Every lie you tell
    Every time you mention my name
    in a malicious manner
    You’ve killed me…
    2, 3, 4 times over

    There’s no more fire in my eyes
    because you doused the flame
    with your game-playing
    Telling me this while telling them that
    You wear the hat of truth
    but the cloak of deception hides it from view

    You murderer!
    You’ve stolen my innocence
    smeared my name with the blood of my mistakes
    Aired my dirty laundry so that the whole town is stinking
    with the stench of my secrets
    Whatever happened to confidentiality?

    I was confident that you would swallow
    my confessions and digest them into your own soul
    But you prepared a table for my enemies
    with the ammunition they needed
    to hunt me down and lynch me like a mob

    You have literally stabbed me with verbal knives…
    Becoming the tare in my wheat
    I must separate myself from you
    before God gets us mixed up and can’t tell who is who anymore

    I’m praying for sticks and stones
    cause broken bones are easy compared to
    the tragedy of spiritual death…

    With each breath I breathe
    I curse your lack of integrity
    and that social disease you’ve contracted…
    You know the one I’m talking about –
    the disease that is only cured by
    setting up others and watching them fall like bricks
    that have just been demolished to make yourself look better.

    Words…

    Sharper than even the sharpest blade
    leaving clean cuts and deep, neat wounds
    bleeding from the revisited pain that I thought I had buried in you…
    that is until you dug it up,
    exumed it
    dusted it off
    and delivered it express mail to anyone with ears to hear…

    I am in fear for my life –

    Words can’t be thrown into a garbage can
    or chunked into the wildest, raging river,
    You can’t rid yourself of the weapon
    I have uncovered the motive,
    and I find you guilty as charged!

    But sentencing is a whole other matter
    because being locked up is a state of mind
    and in your mind, you’re free…

    So, I anticipate my death
    I welcome it…

    because I know it’s coming again real soon.
