Words Hurt

Hit me one more time
Hit me again
Push me around
On the floor
Down the stairs
It hurts less than your words
So kick me
Bruise my skin
But don’t call me names
‘Worthless, ugly’
It causes too much pain
I love you I really do
I’ll take the abuse
And be your punch bag
But please keep your words
My head can’t take it
My mind won’t survive
The truth....
It destroys me.

That is quite brutal and savage. Physical abuse is so distressing but words can sting even more. People find it hard to walk away from a relationship despite the abuse. It is all quite sad. A powerful, emotional piece of verse. Well done.

Words do hurt more than the actually action. Some wounds from words never heal.

This basically describes my experience with elementary and middle school.

elementary and middle school aren't the nicest place for people who are considered different, like me :L

this is powerfull and well written... words can hurt you in so many ways, they can rip your soul apart there for words are far more painful then actions in the end.. well done
