Sticks and stones
may break my bones,
but words can
break my heart.
Your cutting look
was all it took
to take me all
apart.

Sticks and stones
may bring me pain,
but that kind of pain
would heal.
But the scars I have
from all those years-
it seems they'll
never seal.

Sticks and stones
may break my bones,
but you knew from the start,
the power of the
emotional
is what'll break a
heart.
