    They Hurt The Worst.

    The things that people say can hurt just as much if not more then any type of physical pain. I try to be careful with what I say so I don't end up hurting or offending anyone unless I'm really pissed off because I've been hurt by words a countless number of times, and I know It...

    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...

    Caution: Danger of Explosion
