A new poem

I’m not entirely sure what inspired this one:

words drop from your lips
like stones
like blows
and I flinch
words drip from your lips
like poison
like acid
wearing me away
words slide from your lips
like knives
like a scalpel
slicing me apart
words fall from your lips
like wind
like water
sliding off me
words spill from your lips
and I walk away
