The cruelest people
are not the ones who spit on your heart
and deny your love;
they are the ones who
give you just enough emotion
to string you along,
make you believe that they care,
all the while undercutting
everything you say,
demeaning your opinions,
and subtly shitting on your self-esteem
with their veiled passive-aggressive comments.
Cruel people are threatened by you
and want to prove that they hold the power,
so they twist and manipulate you
with their stained,
The sad part is,
you don't recognize they've done this
until long after they've gone,
and the healing wounds are
scars on your heart.
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
