tongue

Without bones 
slices deep feelings 
cuts like 
a knife emotions 
without loosing 
one single 
drop of blood 
can tear 
the heart asunder 

can kill thousands 
one lethal weapon 
a tongue 
mightier than 
the sword 
can cut 
with a razor edge 
like a cat 
o nine tails 

speaking in forks 
lashing each word 
tearing flesh within 
bleeding inside 
truth prevails 
lies in 
the fork 
broken hearted 
in truth 
a deadly weapon

    The power of the tongue. You painted a deadly picture with your words. Nice imagery.
