Words Don'T Hurt - Poem by mestup poems

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.

    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.
