"Words Mean Nothing" By Allison Goldfire

Words Mean Nothing

Your voice is of gentle rolling thunder through mountains of fog.
It reverberates off the most vulnerable parts of me.
Your voice is of poison spit through deceit.
It rots through my skin to the most vulnerable parts of me.
Your voice is of silence, cutting through until I'm numb.
Splitting skin that were scars on me.
Your faux Southern twang distorting truths
Of how gentle you are, how hurt you have been.
You mold your misfortunes into a shotgun bullet.
Aiming directly towards my decomposing chest.
