Words that haunt
And make you wonder
If what you’ve done is right
Taunting, teasing, tearing

Words that shine
Touching you everywhere
Make you smile from within
And bring you joy

Words that wound
Pieces of your soul
Dropping into your heart
Rock-hard and heavy

Words that lift
Your spirits high
Allowing you to soar
And setting you free

Words said in anger
Cannot be taken back
Once they have been cast
Out into the open

Words from the heart
Can heal pain
Inflicted by other words
