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.
