Your words hurt

Your words hurt

A Poem by tanaya

WARNING: There is crude language in this. Poem a wrote... Kind of a vent






I guess I'm all that

You call me every name under the sun

Out me down to the ground


"materialistic c**t"

Just because I don’t want to go out in the rain?

"Go and cry"

Maybe I will, but do you care?

"don’t let your makeup run!"

It runs because you make me cry


After all I did

I was the only one on your side

I was the only one there for you


I risked my family for you

And this is how you repay me?


Degrading words

Making me feel worthless

Making me feel like I am nothing


Am I nothing to you?

Are my good deeds forgotton?

Replaced only with bad ones


You look at me and all you see are my mistakes

Was I a mistake to you?

Was I a bad investement?


If you don’t want me around

Just say so

Spare me the pain


Your degrading words

Your spiteful words

Your stabbing words


They hurt

They stab me deep in the heart

Where it hurts the most


Your betrayel to my heart hurts the most

I cared for you

I put my faith in you


And this is how you repay me

With degrading words

Putting me down


Well guess what,

Your words hurt!

They kill!


Ripping me apart inside!

Leaving behind a black hole,

Where my once broken heart rest


You broke a broken person

You tore me apart

I am nothing


Do you know how it hurts?

Do you realise,

Your words hurt!

Awesome write, chock-full of emotions! Back-stabbing is one of the most painful things we can experience as people. You didn't just write your emotions you TOLD them, very well I might add. Great work!

Hell's teeth. Sorry, I had to go back and check your age there. Partly because it is so powerful a work, and because it is so well written. Power I suspect that comes from reality rather than immagination. A stunning introduction to your work. Such imagry of pain that it's hard to ignore. There is a lot of self indulgent 'poor me' twaddle on here. This isn't. This is something great.

And as for the girls... To Hell with them. Anyone can be a clone with no soul

This poem doesn't hurt, it releases the anger to the winds of time.

Wow. Powerful, strong and painful. . It is my sincerest hope that this comes from your past. To be seen as less than you are hurts To be told you are less than you are is a betrayal of the highest order, and if we hear them under the wrong circumstances we begin to believe the betrayer.

To all the girls who may believe these words: THEY ARE LIES. We begin perfect and beautiful and should ask no ones permission to see ourselves as such. Let NO ONE tell you otherwise.

See - you touched a nerve here. Good write.

the pain of it all is portrayed amazingly

Yes. The words of another do hurt those they are being tossed at. I believe everyone in the world understands the hatred words being thrown at them by others. The beauty in this poem is dark and I loved it.

A poem made mainly for the point to be made - a downright rejection of 'sticks and stones'. It takes time to wittle it down to only surrounding yourself with the people who care back. Nice write.
