"if words could kill"

if words could kill
i do believe
i'd be dead by now
ten times over, and then some
with all of your remarks
insults
curses
and
comments.
sticking out of me
like knives.
"worthless!" -- you've punctured my heart.
"stupid!" -- you're bleeding my soul.
"lazy!" -- go on, just cut it out.
literally.
it might end sooner.
