sticks and stones may break your bones
but words,
will never hurt you

tell me, did it hurt
did your chest constrict,
did your lungs threaten to fail,
did your eyes burn,
did your stomach drop,

did it hurt
to read those blood stained words
and know they were the last
thank God, too.

Well, that simply throws a punch at the heart. Wonderful poem, and I adore the title too.

Is there a story behind this, or simply just an idea pulled from the air?

thank you :) and yeah, i hope it would
well, it's not pulled from thin air, but it very nearly could have happened to someone close to me, two people actually. it was more in general for everyone who's been told that, and knew it wasn't true.

I love the title. And I especially like the last three lines. :)

This sounds like it could be a sequel to my poem On being told to grow up....

i still can't get over the amazing imagery in that. and yes, it fits quite well after yours ^^ i definitely got the inspiration from one of your poems, that i can't seem to find now. hmph.
