Tongue Machete

by Qiana

Instantly letting out that one word
  some felt it
   some went unheard
how can you not hear that what I said
was for your ears only
that I cut you 
    I divide the line
between shocking you 
  to opening up your mind
sharp tip
  twists when I speak
the tongue machete
    cuts deep.
