Words Like Knives

I thought this year would be better

Your words are like knives
Are they truthful or lies
They just ruin lives
Tears running from my eyes

I know you're trying
To pay these bills
It’s really just the lying
It’s really making me ill

I only go with what you say
Then the calls eventually start
This is really ruining my day
It’s just breaking my heart

This is quite concerning
To be in the dark
You really should be earning
Another big question mark

I’m always left numb
It’s not getting any better
This really is so dumb
I’ll write you another letter

You just aren’t on my page
You’re introverted and don’t speak
It’s a complete rampage
This situation is bleak

I just am very tired you know
It’s like talking to a wall
So much grief and woes
You really are an oddball

I'll continue to pray
Hopefully, my prayers will be heard
I wish I could run away
This is rather absurd
