Words cut you
Deeper than swords,

Lither the scars
You can’t forget,

A vinyl record
Hum deeper to core,

Continuous battle you
Can’t phantom,

Tug of war you enter
To renounce you
Are better,

Yet, lost in chatter
Scribbling the matter,

Coping from heart bleed
Words were never meant
To flee,

Permanent stamp of
Make believe,

You are flying free
Reality horror spree,

Words cut you deeper
Than swords,
So venomous you can’t
Forget.

  1. I thought it was the other way around: “sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me”? Perhaps because words more clearly define a feeling than an action, leave less ambiguity? But that doesn’t make much since either since actions generally say more than words.

    • in a way,, but, some words do hurt you deeper and you carry them for so long with you it’s hard to be yourself sometimes. it take a quite a while to detach you from such things and be back to what is normal to you.

        • See some times people say something that stays with you for long time, hurting you for long period, you can’t just forget words you know, they don’t heal that faster. It takes time to detach yourself from that kind of hurt.
