Words don't hurt


Words don't hurt
The person saying them does.
Just seeing where it is coming from
Is like taking a sword
stabbing it into my chest.

Then when I realize
the feelings that go along with the words.
I picture you
turning the sword inside my chest.

Then, with every dropp of blood dripping out,
I have to remind myself that
they are only words;
And that words don't hurt.

    Well I don't think that true in my opinion because in my words I say ''Words Hurt Scars Don't'' (Report) Reply

    It is so true what you are saying! The words you can ignore, but the person saying it gives you the pain. This is a very truthful poem.
