Exit Wound
Your words are like daggers
Stabbing me in the ears
Trying too hard to be tactful
To make up for the years

You're as intricate as a festering, ugly laceration
Your mental standing gone with a double amputation

Your crutches fail

Each word before my eyes
Turns my stomach sour
A cancer to only metastasize
With each waking hour

A skill for the unskilled, to never pick up the pen
And spare innocent eyes from drunken words again

You never heard

When there's nothing left
Don't rely on lyrical ambition

If there's nothing left
Don't rely on textual attrition

So now your overconfidence
Transcends a written form
Much like a porous umbrella
Standing in a raging storm

Imitating the practice that I've come to embrace
Flattery is never seen as I put words to your face

A different stroke

Entering an unknown realm
Takes fortitude of size
Accomplishing a notoriety
With lack of malice and lies

You must feel a need to achieve more than spite
Impossible to feel without insults, give up the fight

Leave mine to me

If it's an outlet for me
Don't praise and underachieve

If it's an outlet for you
Then this time make me believe

Whew had the impact of a train! I loved the strength of voice in this piece. There are so many gems throughout and I appreciated them all. "Much like a porous umbrella
Standing in a raging storm"......GREAT!! I've enjoyed this...well done! =))
