The Sour Taste of Words

Words cause hope and words cause fear

Words have meaning, sometimes unclear

Words are spoken without thought

And causes love to fall apart.


This love begins to weaken and crack

Pieces fall from the words that attacked

Hurtful words so hard to swallow

And the taste of bile begins to grow


The region of my heart starts to harden

I let no one in, like an overgrown garden

I lived alone the remainder of my days

And never forgot your hurtful ways.
