How Lies can Stab Like a Knife

A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill

My Heart Is broken, Shattered to pieces
Now that your gone all happiness ceases,
You can’t imagine all the pain inside
You can’t imagine all the tears I’ve cried.

Now that your thinking of you next victim girl
I hope you know how you shattered my world,
But you don’t care it’s all the same
Who knows how many times you’ve played this game.

Well I’m one girl that won’t be ignored
Better slow down boy if you think you’ve scored
Cuz misery is all the same to me
It’s not to you, well it better be,
Cuz I’m not about to let this go
I want to make sure you know
What you’ve done to my life
And how lies can stab like a knife
