~ Hurtful Words ~
I sit here shivering and shuddering
Tears, like raindrops, fall from my eyes
Words have cut to my very soul
But I've kept silent, no one is wise.
I cry alone so they don't know
How hurtful their words were to me
They cut like a knife, so deep and wide
They don't care, they refuse to see.
My feelings don't seem to matter at all
I'm treated better by a complete stranger
They take the time to listen to me
Not judge, condemn, or get angered.
Why do people do what they do?
Why do they set out to hurt?
They seem to enjoy inflicting pain
With words that are cruel and curt.
So in the dark I sit and sob
My eyes are red from a river of tears
I gasp and my shoulders start to heave
This hurt has come from my peers.
