sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will ******* me
in ways that a crack in my skeleton
never could

sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will leave me
lonely and lost in self-deprecating thoughts
at 2 in the morning

sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will leave behind
wounds that don't heal
and scars that won't fade away

sticks and stones may break my bones,
but they could never hurt me
like your words did.

t.m.
it's 2:34 am and all i can think about is the time you told me i ****** everything up.
