They're just words they shouldn't hurt,
Said unthinkingly by another,
But they pain my soul and cloud my day,
Why do people do this to each other?
It was only 8 little words,
Yet you hit the mark, you scored,
You achieved your goal of hurting me,
You severed a heart chord.
I did nothing to deserve this hurt
Nothing to earn this pain,
Yet foolishly I take it,
And come back for you to do it again.
Why bother being hurtful?
Our lives should be filled with love.
How many times I've prayed for this,
For some strength from up above.
Does it make you feel strong and manly,
In control of your domain?
Why do you even bother
To open old wounds again?
I took it today like I always do,
Suffering in silence and in pain,
I pray one day you will learn,
And not be so hurtful again...
