Cold.

Cold is your heart
Earth shattering envy
Blood curdling hurt

Why is your heart a stone
Is someone hurting you
when you're at home

Or does the taunting get to you
The ones who call you mean
or gay

Is there something deep inside
that hurts so bad
you can only confide

In the cold so deep
so dark
Icing your tender wounds

From those around you
who just don't know
that there's a heart in you

This is a good piece. I like it. You captured the third person view on bullying and it's a powerful perception. Keep up the great work.

I love how you delve into their concious, though, and give even "despicable" people a voice.
