Spite

my words will haunt you
they’ll tear your soul apart
my words, they taunt you
disintegrate your heart

my words are spiteful
of that you can be sure
my words are truthful
they cut you to the core

I want to help you
I want you to believe
I want to hurt you
so you’ll start seeing me

my words will crush you
I’ll torture you insane
my words will gut you
I offer you my pain

secret truths will pierce you
flay you to the bone
strip away illusion
leave you all alone

then at last I’ll have you
your soul, your flesh, your blood
and in return I’ll offer you
my unforgiving love

About Freya Pickard:

Pushcart Prize nominee, Freya Pickard is the quirky, unusual author of The Kaerling series, an epic fantasy set in the strange and wonderful world of Nirunen. A cancer survivor, she writes mainly dark fantasy tales and creates expressive poetry in order to rest the prose side of her brain. Her aim in life is to enchant, entertain and engage with readers through her writing. She finds her inspiration in the ocean, the moors, beautifully written books and vinyl music (particularly heavy metal and rock). Her most recent relaxation techniques to get her through lockdown include hatha yoga and painting landscapes and monsters in watercolour.
