If Words Could Kill

If words could kill I’d be dead right now
For I’ve heard the harshest things

Whether through a discreet mumble or
A well thought out scream

Words that cut like daggers, diminish the
Mind and emotions

Words that hit like blows to the head or
Rapid waves from the ocean

Words that sometimes weren’t meant for
You, weren’t destined for your ears
Words that hurt you to your soul
And bring forth hidden tears

If words could kill I’d be dead right now
From very unfortunate lies

Lies that weaken your heart within,
Lies that come as a surprise

Lies that make you wonder if this life you live
Is worth living

Lies that draw you to negative things,
Lies that force you to give in

If words could kill I’d die right now from
All the hurt I’ve endured

If words could kill
I’d die right now…
I’d die right now
For sure
