Stabbed Gashes, Daggared Words

People say,

'Sticks and stones my break my

Bones, but words can never hurt me.'

Lies. Physical pain you can endure, it

Has to stop eventually. Mental pain can

Drive you crazy, twist the boundaries of

Sanity. Ragged wounds can by healed

By medical tape and gauze,

But holes in the mind

Take time and effort.

The End
