Sticks and stones

Sticks and stones may break my bones,
but words will never hurt me.

Na, I disagree.
Because if anything
I believe oppositely.
Pain and bruises go away eventually
but hurtful words and memories
stay with you for all eternity.
I'd rather be
beat up physically
than have someone who means
a lot to me
hurt me
& possibly
kill me,
