δηλητήριο, φαρμάκι

The first is the literal translation and it is pronounced dhilitνrio. The second one is a poetic type that is pronounced farmαki.
I hope I helped you out.

The translation of poison was given above: it's "το δηλητήριο". I'd just like to add the other two words you asked for:
death= ο θάνατος
kill = σκοτώνω
