I Wonder Why The Words Hurt

Wicka ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I wonder why the words they say
Hurt, cut, fray away.

I’m sure that’s not what they intend to say
Still, it’s happened, it happened yesterday.

Some words were cruel, some just offhand
I lay awake all night, trying to understand.
