The words march up your throat
like an army of the fiercest soldiers.
Each one pushing
and screaming,
ripping and tearing,
prying open your defiant jaw
with razor sharp blades.
Each blow forces it farther
until the words erupt
like molten lava,
burning and scarring
or anyone-
in its path.
The pain subsides.
The fear,
the anger,
the hate
has drained.
But pain cannot be destroyed,
only placated,
and pain is a disease
afflicting the world,
spread by the spoken word.
The battle may be won, yes,
but the war is far from over.
