Spoken with a sneer

You put me in your cage of lies
Then whipped me with your words
Your rumors meant to chain me down
Your righteous lies, absurd

Your saddest need to elevate
The crisis you create
And then as victim cry and wail
When all reject your bait

Your tongue a sword of sickening rust
With prayer, and threats misused
Each word in sickness voiced mistrust
As thoughts flow with abuse

Yet all would heal, with just two words
If spoken true and clear
Yet these I fear, will not be heard
When spoken with a sneer

(family can drive you crazy)

Words can be injurous enough without running a spear (sneer) through one's heart.

sad when those who love one another cannot see that the love is more important that all else
Reviewed by Muhammad Al Mahdi
Absolutely, yes. Often enough we fail to understand that, and so the hand extended in fulfilling what is perceived to be merely an obligation becomes a slap in the face.
Reviewed by pat medlin
this is an excellent emotional piece. it needs to be read through at least twice to absorb the pain-filled words of a heart with an obvious but sad decision to make. it starts in past tense and moves into the present letting the reader know that binding invisible strings have not been cut. whether this was intentional or not i'm not sure, but to me it was definitely 'telling'

i enjoyed this sad read....now i must search for a lighter subject to restore my morning brightness...pmedlin

Sadly, this is very true. You make some very valid point and I am sure many who read your words will relate. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Those two words although often the hardest to say, when said with sincerity, are almost as good as three other words.

A complex personality, more than likely wounded deeply, belittling and lashing out in an effort to make the other feel as horrid and worthless as he/she does. Life is plethoric with these types. And it, indeed, puts ones moxie to the test. It's good that you chose to write about it instead of picking up a gun. Poetically you've written a fine flowing reflection, Anita, which everyone will relate to.
Peace to you ...
