A New Poem

I tried my hand at writing another poem today.  This is about those people who use your words against you.

Words As Weapons

I used to provide you with weapons

Words you could twist around

And shoot them back at me

Turn a confession into a lie

Turn that lie into a tale

And that tale into the ruin of me.

Laughter and finger pointing

Building up my scar tissue

With no shields to defend me

From the knives that you threw

And the sharp arrows you fired

Until I lay bleeding on the ground.

I never pitched back those weapons

And stealthy slipped away from you

I stopped giving you my words

So now you only have your lies

Well, now you can fill your gun with blanks

And shoot off with what you don’t know about me.
