Familiar Hatred
Upper hand gained with a low blow
Then come back to say goodbye
Bad intentions with your words
Things only seen, never heard

Text does this no justice
Seeing all you want to see
All ears, deaf to my thoughts
Another endless battle fought

Your thumbs are moving swiftly
To the beat of your time bomb
Say a lot but refute nothing
Say empty rebuttal is something

Put this last effort into more
Cling to your last few friends
Likewise, I realize and turn away
This monotony, just a game to play

Throw a dart, make it stick to anything
That's much more than your logic ending
Turn my comfort into mutual suffering
Lick the verbal wounds slow at healing

Verbal homicide

So lie from the inside
To promote what's outside
I can't say I never tried
To end this amicable suicide

Parting blow in a greeting card
Takes the place of your regret
Send a signal in dire fashion
Bite hard at the lights flashing

The time draws where words end
But emotions not transmitted
So you say nothing, can't resist
Fearing there's a point you missed

Logic evades you a country mile
Content with what you call your own
I earnestly wait to see the ellipsis
Laconic returns are risky business

A friendship gone with some words
Couldn't save you if I tried
Arrogance exuding from each pore
No surprise you find this all a bore

So keep finding solace in your ignorance
If not, you'll discover it with arrogance
Sure, this text-based war makes no sense
A past abhorrence meets the present tense

I become the heel

Being "kind of a big deal"
Something your ego makes real
If that's really how you feel
To you, my thumbs are sealed.
