A Few Visitor Comments

omg,i love this poem! I can relate to this poem so much. words to hurt alot even though there only words.

Words

Words don't hurt.
The person saying them does.
Just seeing where it is coming from
is like taking a sword
and stabbing it into me 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 drop of blood dripping out,
I have to remind myself that
they are only words.
