Small Talk

I’ve never been one to control friendships
But I know when to silence demons
You may not find it fitting but what do you call entities that spread evil
“She said, he said, she heard” is not evidence
But still they take on the duty of playing reporter
Coming up with headlines and delivering the news to you
Like vultures they live off of rumors that stir trouble, hoping to reign over the
corpse of a shell that once housed an unbroken heart.
Be wary of false prophets and their need to only prophesy doom.
They project their fears onto you, setting dates for our end and ways we will
hurt each other.
Fueling stereotypes because they are but a stereotype, having more to say
than those in the center of the matter.
I’ve never been one to control friendships
But I know when to silence demons.
