When words sting…


I pour my heart out

Day after day

Ridiculed sometimes

For what I might say

They’ll always be someone

Who finds some sort of flaw

Leaving me feeling

As if I’ve been punched in the jaw

Their words they sting

Like a thousand bees

Bringing me down

Upon my knees

Crying because

I don’t fit in

Left wondering why

I can’t ever win

  7. Yes, words do hurt. Your arrange your words so beautifully, and I can’t imagine that you would deliberately hurt with them. I enjoy your writings very much.
