Venom

Hurt but hidden
Pierced and wounded
Bending and falling over
Aching in misery
Trying to comprehend how I let myself
Get so close to people
That all they have to do
To make me feel insignificant and foul
And ashamed of myself
Is with a lash of the tongue
A simple whip
And a bruise appears
Blemishing my mask
A cut leaks it's venomous sting
Through the surface
And bleeds itself
Inside
The venom
Sinking deeper
And closer
