I'D Be Careful If I Were You - Poem by Scarlet .....

you make me laugh
you try to scare me with your words
and your threats
but do you not see
you can no longer cause any new damage to me
for every part of me has a scar
from you and you evil words
all you can do now is open up old wounds
your words are now empty for you can see they no longer hurt me
you threats run cold
for you see the laughter in my eyes
you can not scare me
in these past 4 years alone
I have walked through hell and back
I mad that journey all on my own
nothing you can do or say
will hurt me any more
the only they your words do now
is either make me want to laugh
in pity for you
or they summon my beast
and let me tell you
that is worse for you than it is for me
so I warn you now
be careful what you say and do
for if you raise me beast
it will come for you
and you alone
so I say do not chance it
do not tease or taunt my beast
because let me tel you it wants to come out and play
and damn would I enjoy the show
