Inflicts Injury

When words are meant to protest

Feelings transform into burning embers

Every word singes the heart

More they are read, burns the deeper layers

Words have this burning desire to destroy

As embers bury deeper into the Soul

Damages the layers of life inch by inch

Mercenary hearts strike in stealth

Wages a guerrilla war against unassuming souls

Flaming words burn with intensity

Arson to cause widespread damage to trust

Also, burns the hands of perpetrators

Embers also bury themselves deeper into their heart

Universe has a collective comeuppance©
