    Words Painful Cut

    The words hurt worse than a fist to the face, leaving their scars on my soul and within my heart.  I look deep within the mirror looking for the visible outward signs of pain but none are there. Words hurt like a blade slicing into my flesh leaving their cuts within my mind...
