I want to thank you

For the discouragement

I want to thank you

For your thoughtless blows

I want to thank you

For the venom that dripped

From forked tongue you flaunted

So carelessly, so thoughtlessly

Poisoning my mind, wounding my heart

Could you be crueler?

You don't seem to hate me

No one sees the vicious blows you give me

Only I, the victim, can feel them

Why don't you just take a knife

And thrust it through my heart?

There would be no difference

Venomous fangs, deadly blades

None compare to your tongue

Sharper than any sword

You use it so thoughtlessly

Go on, go on, do hate

But first, spare me

Take this knife my dear friend
