Words hurt too

Pain comes in the oddest of forms
Through sunny days and bad storms
Words are worse than any hard hits
They are hard to swallow, just like grits
The pain can last for days or years
It soon begins to feed all your fears
It turns good dreams into nightmares
It makes it seem like nobody cares
About your life or your broken dreams
Your faith in love is lost it seems
Words do damage the eyes can’t see
It makes being happy so very hard to be
It turns the world of hope inside-out
It feels like everything is full of doubt
Even if it’s sunny and bright outside
Under the covers you want to run and hide
Friends always ask you why the long face
Because you sit and stare into outer space
To tell the cause of your personal hell
Would put their friendship up for sale
Words are best given with compassion
Never in anger, not in any fashion
