sticks and stones and hurtful words

your words
just words
like a dagger
its sharp point
tearing the skin
splintering bones
its jagged edges
piercing my heart
as blood spills
deep pain overwhelms
and crushes my spirit
sadness invades my soul
and I feel its mournful tears
knowing a part of me has died
just words
your words

*** Inspired by a poem posted by OM at http://aopinionatedman.com/2013/10/24/not-a-song-not-a-poem/ ***

    As I lost myself in this poem, I could not help but notice that they text appeared in the form of an arrowhead – fitting for such a sharp commentary!
