They are only said



Again in the dark and all alone
With only words that echo in
the Devil's tone
Yells and shouts that are shot
out without a doubt
And the love and strength to pull through
Shot like an arrow through your
heart
Words that pound and tear
you apart
Pierce stings and verbal threats
that streak through your mind
But are just said
With words kicking you in the ribs
Knowing someone loves you
Pushes you to live
Though in the end the wounds do mend
The words are only spoken
They are only said

    Excellent poem, we know words written or spoken can not be erased, they cut into the very marrow of us, but love spoken heals all - no greater love then this.................
