Lyrical Assasination

by Lakesha Jenkins

You can run but you cannot hide 
from my lyrical assasination
Pen decimate paper imagining instead that it is flesh tearing
Words fly more forcefully than bullets ever will
Penetrating all within its path
Shredding every memory because it simply did not last 
Betrayals drop dead first
Followed quickly by deceit
No emotion was in attendance
When deceit met his defeat
Verbs destroyed heartache while the nouns executed lies
Celibacy rebuked lust while want stood back and cried
False intentions tried to run but adjectives blocked his escape
Keeping it real demolished fakeness then proceed to take down games
Just as adverb caught up with the gerunds and put the beat
down on cheatings ass
Then truth came out of nowhere and slashed the throat of self defeat
While hatred got trampled under the feet of acceptance and self esteem
Courage performed the autopsy to find the cause of death of cowardly acts
Forgiveness delivered flowers 
Letting go drove the hearse 
And after the funeral I ended my sick and twisted prose
Lyrical assasination complete
