Believe me, my friend

Your vicious tongue

Are more deadly

Than the serpent's venom

For your words drip

With venom, with hate

You strike me mercilessly

With that vicious tongue

My heart, oh my heart

You have tainted it,

Your shadow of hatred

It stretches far, so far

That I see no light, no love

You do not try to hurt me

It simply slips off your vicious tongue

Do you realize the fatal blows

You send me with your vicious tongue

Even if you do not, the scars remain

Embedded in my flesh, pain and memory

When you do not see me tomorrow

Or the day after, ne'er again

Will you know why?
