Your Nightmare’s Echo

Your words are cold, sharp, and heartless
And they hurt more than the blade of this knife
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But only words could break this life
Your whispers echo and they won’t quit
So quietly spoken, yet built so thick
Your words weren’t meant for everyone to hear
They were meant for me, weren’t they, my dear?
Your fingers stroke my face, my skin
But it’s like a blade to the heart, I’m bleeding within
Your eyes are deep, once full of life
But now they’re cold, like the metal of this knife
They pierce through my heart and through my soul
Taking everything I am, everything I know

You heartless fool, you can’t feed off of me
I’m half past dead, and you won’t let me be
I can’t watch you do this, so I’ll do it myself
Take this blade from your hand and kill you myself
And your eyes are open, didn’t see it coming
I wish I could watch, but I’m already falling
This worthless life is already ending
Now all is gone, there’s no more pretending
You killed me with your words, your silent echoes
And I killed you with my screams, your nightmare’s echo

This is a little different, but I thought I’d share it anyway. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
