Verbal Slave

by Tameko L. Barnette

I hung on to your words for so long

it was only several months but the feeling was strong

you said one thing, then flipped it the next day

could never keep up with the shit you say

when I would quote you I was made to feel wrong

but I became your verbal slave no longer singing my song

you whispered bitter nothings into the pits of my ear

you lied, you lied about lying to me as if I can't hear

I understand your bullshit you've been flinging it for awhile

way before I came along, I guess it's just your style

but I became your verbal slave slowly coming back to me

realizing you were not the friend, that you claimed to be

and now that I am awake I am no longer your friend,

because of your verbal abuse this shit had to end
