Your writing really is going from strength to strength.
I love the way you have formatted this, it gives the reader a real sense of falling with you, as it were.
As for that absurd saying 'sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me' - well, don't get me started there!
Thank you so much, Ben!
I agree. I think words can actually be the most dangerous weapons when it comes to tearing someone down...emotionally and mentally.
Thanks again for reading and for your comment!
loving the layout, but still, I would like to see Janis enable us to do more with the words. I feel if this ever happens this piece could be a visual masterpiece. Great job though with one arm tied behind your back!
The layout is simply so pleasant to read.
And I really love the first line.
``your words hurt``...
I know we hear these words often, but something is different about it here, and I can't make out what. Maybe because you chose to start the poem with those words. I simply love it.
A beautiful write with hues of sadness.
