Sticks And Stones - Poem by Karla Glover

People have always told me,
'sticks and stones may break your bones,
But words will never hurt you.'
They were wrong.

You said 'I love you'
'you are perfect'
'I'll never leave, no matter what'

I believed you, then you wanted more
'If you loved me then you'd do this for me.'
'you aren't as perfect as you seem'
'I won't leave, if you do this'

But I have morals,
I'm not as stupid as you took me to be,
I'm not just a stupid freshman girl.

'I never actually loved you'
'You are just a broken piece of crap! '
'Why on Earth would I stay with you? '

People have always told me,
'sticks and stones may break your bones,
But words will never hurt you.'
They were wrong.

Your words hurt me more than anyone knows,
And I have the scars to prove it.
