A poem about a very bad person.. This poem was inspired by this person...

Sticks & stones may break my bones,

But words will never hurt them

That is what I’ve always said

Now I know it’s not true.

Your words have shattered my heart,

Your words have torn my soul.

You’ve been so cruel, so mean,

This has always been your goal.

You have haunted me.

You have become a demon.

You are such a burden,

You’re a scoundrel & a heathen.

I trusted you.

I loved you dearly.

You took advantage,

You’ve hurt me severely.

Sticks & stones may break my bones,

But words will never hurt them.

This is a lie… Your words make me

Want to lay down and die!

Another great poem! 'Tis true, this guy does sound like a complete arsehole. I find it fasinating how some people act in some situations, it always seems odd when they have set out on a mission to hurt someone. Human behaviour is something I keep a close eye on, there's some screwed up people on this Earth. But anyway, great poem! Enjoyed! by me :)

Sticks and stones may break bones BUT they heal faster then the pain caused by mean words. I have a poem about how words hurt as well not this good though. Although sad and about your pain this is a really good poem well written

I've always hated that saying .Cos words actually hurt more than blows ,they may leave bruises but bruises fade.Harsh words can stay with you forever.Great poem

Words are the sharpest weapons that we, as humans, have.
