To Kill a Man.
How much does it cost to kill a man
To hold his useless life in your hand?
Does it break you, destroy your soul
Turn you inside out, swallow you whole?
What does it take to kill a man
To cost a life in order to take a stand
To throw him straight to the fires of hell
To turn away and ignore their yell?
What if your soul is already broken
The words left to say are already spoken?
Will the feelings held in come to consume
The guilt from inside send you to your doom?
How much does it cost to kill a man
To hold his useless life in your hand
If the targeted deserves all that you do
If he's done everything he can to kill you?
What sound will he make with the last breath he will take
As I drown him in the endless tears he made me make?

I can relate to your angst, from my younger days. I'm so glad that I don't waste all that emotion on those who don't deserve it any more! You need to stay away from men who don't treat you with respect. Concentrate on your kids--they grow up too fast and you and they will have regrets if you waste time on clueless men instad of spending quality time with them. Like I said....been there.

I love your wording on this, the lines flow into each other perfectly.

So, many guys hit on you after this? haha, yes, a quick explaination afterwards makes you seem soooo much safer! But really, it's interesting and put together well.

haha. yes, I know, this is just a frustration, a battle of wits with only emotional victims... Not like I really want to kill someone...
