The Nature Of Language

you always made me feel alright when you spoke with gentle, kindly words.
you always gave me goosebumps when you told me words of affection.
you always took satisfaction when you saw me flinch at a dirty joke.
you always laugh when you tease me with awful things.
how does it feel?
how does it feel to experience such words?
once something leaves your mouth, it scatters to the wind.
like dandelion seeds.
never to be taken back.
