Sword Words

written by: Regis Auffray



Harsh, callous words
like jagged, brutal blade
pierce, rip, and shred
my heart;
cold, cruel steel
chills my essence
within the emptying veins
of my weakened self
and steals my labored breathing.

My mind is faint, slipping;
grateful for the oblivion of night.

Perhaps this time
benevolent darkness will obliterate
and all this hurting.

Once and for all
shadows will become
and all this pain
will be done.

How apt an anagram
for words
is sword.

How much sweeter
had you said nothing.
