Words

Why did it hurt

They are just words

Spoken

I heard them

It did not touch me

Not a hair on my body

But it went through my heart

Grabbed it

Squeezed it

Touched my very core

Words

Why did it hurt

They are just words

Spoken

Devastated me

Tears are falling

Chest starts aching

Body starts to heat-up

A slight tremble starts

Hands are shaking

Weak knees

Words

Why did it hurt

They are just words

Spoken
