When words hurt When words hurt Knives scar my mind And in the dreariest of nights A beautiful flower shrivels, In the darkest of nights A poisoned flower blossoms. When words hurt My heart aches and mourn And on the gloomy side of things Acid falls down from my eyes Making their way desperately Till lakes where cadavers rest. When words hurt I’ve now learned to let it hurt Because they’re only words Meant to trigger my feelings My peace, that serenity I let it hurt, afterwards I’m freed. -Eiravel-
Remember, only a little spark suffice to start a gargantuesque fire. Words are meant to be beautiful, to soothe, to appease, to elevate. Words under no circumstances are to be used to attack, to bully, to harass, to uglify, and to humiliate. What’s beautiful shouldn’t be weaponised.
