These words, they can’t help me anymore.

Not even the words taste right, right now.
They burn my throat and make my tongue numb, as if 
they are poisoning me from the inside out. The words
they used to always be my friend, 
an ally in a world of “every man for himself.”
That world that we created and continue to perpetuate. But 
these words
when did they learn to betray me? When did 
they became greater than the sum of their parts?
When did I forget how to control them? So much so, that
they went from simple and fluid to
piercing.
