Taste like lava in my mouth
From the inside
They bring me back together
Just so you can tear me down again
They hurt so much
I want to rip my skin out
Words flow from your lips
Like a thousand lashed of a whip
Bruising my mind
Hurting my sanity
“Your Words” is a poem that first appeared on Lifesfinewhine. I wrote this poem because many people forget how much power words have. We may not realise it but what we say is very powerful. And they may be impacting those around us more than we realise. Others do realise how much impact words have and use that to manipulate us. That is what this poem is about.
