“Sticks and Stones” (November 19, 2008)
I feel sick, sick to my stomach, and the tears fall so heavily on my clothes.
I don’t want anybody to see me, see me cry out all my pains onto the floor.
Tissues won’t hold a river.
I’d like to introduce you to my feelings.
I’d like to say sticks and stones may break my bones, and words, they always hurt.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, and words, they always hurt.
