Words are like a knife

When you care and they stab you.

You feel tired, emotionless,


Words can be just like a punch to a stomach.

A kick to the shin

Words can leave

You breathless

Just like a basketball going 15mph

Right into your stomach

Words hurt just as much as physical violence

So why stab people with words?
