Indifferent Words - Poem by Adrian Wait

Ice cold from a poisoned well
Indifferent words disfigure
Tearing like a broken saw
Crafted with cruel meaning
Smiling liars lie to themselves
Conforming to the rule
Careless words merge to pierce
Indifferent Words
Vomited with jagged intent
Label, categorise, dismiss
Primeval chaos disguised
Mistaken for resolve
Bow the knee to golden calf
The centre of your own world
Blind to the pain you inflict
Indifferent Words
Lacking in compassion
Wise in your own eyes
Lipservice the currency
In a bankrupt world
Objectivity and charity
Familiar tunes of deception
Indifferent Words
Your dagger strikes, punctures
Bleeding vulnerability
Poor in all but betrayal
Reveals chilling indifference
Labels, categorises, dismisses
Industries built upon idle words
Indifferent Words
Binding conformity to blindness
Apathy with an Empty smile
Your heart will be revealed
Graveyard of indifferent words
Secured by lack of passion
Shallowness, insincerity
Indifferent words
