Like a Dagger in the Heart

Like a Dagger in the heart

Picture courtesy of

Your words twist
and turn
Red hot, they brand
and burn
They escape before
life begins
Like a dagger in the heart
they twist in

They burn like acid through
the soul
Burrowing deep in darkness,
taking hold
There they reside, writhing,
Ready for rebirth in
silent seething

This your making, your
child of lies
Your creature of
inner sighs
Limits have been reached,
lines crossed
Beware this wily, tired
ole’ fox

Beware the calm and the
oncoming storm…
