Just.... Words

Word are.... just words.
Some, unknown to man.
But there are some words that hurt.
Words people don't even think hurt, but they do.
There are words that show love and kindness to people.
That's all they will ever be.... jut words.
They are the things that can express so much feeling and emotion.
Words that can cheer a person up, or bring them down.
Words that not everyone will be able to explain.
Or so I thought.
You made my words make sense but then you used them against me, hurting me.
Those words that used to show kindness, now showing hatred.
But there's always that one person.
Who's words never hurt.
Words that always make me happy.
Words that can never bring me down.
So I must thank the Lord for words and you.
Yes there is HIM but I think I'll let him go, he's not worth it.
Not through the fighting, anger and hatred.
He's not worth it yet, I know you'll never let him go.
He may bother you at times too but you still love him.
So maybe I'll have to forget you too.
Thinking about forgetting you hurts.
What is needed to be happy must be done.
But in the end aren't we all forgotten?

Wow! I like this. I love the poems that take something so simple, so overlooked, and drag them into the light. Words are "just words"... or are they? This is your way of saying they aren't. The last two lines are good, too, because they really wrap up the poem. Do you think you could check out and comment on some of my work?

This poem is very real. I felt like you were just clearing your mind and writing what you needed to write.

The ones who say they love us are the ones that hurt us the most.

Um BrokenAngel, this is free verse, so it's not supposed to rhyme. I think that this is good, there are a few typos and grammar errors but it's truly beautiful. I love the last line, "But in the end aren't we all forgotten?" That feeling and mystery is what you should strive for in all of your writing. Good luck and keep writing and don't let anyone ever bring you down! (:

Poetry doesn't have to rhyme. That is a common but false misconception.

I think the words are really great but it needs some work on the rhyming words.....cause its a poem and there are no rhyming words....
