That’s what you said

Burning toast
A cheating spouse
The death of a loved one

What is pain?

You’ll never be a writer
You’ve never experienced pain

That’s what you said

But I’m the one with the pen
The sword

I’m the one who could kill you
Make you poor
Turn you into a man
Put a penis on your head

What is pain?

Pain is what you gave
It put this pen in my hand

I could kill you
