Sticks and Stones This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I sit alone
in a quiet room
trying not
to think of you
breathing hard
and bleedqing slow
am i dead
or alive
i simply just don’t know

i stand alone
on the edge
of everything
I’ve become
and haven’t been
trying hard
not to run
away from all of this
away from you
away from me

sticks and stones
will break my sorry bones
but your words
are deadlier
than anything
i ve ever know
you just can’t see
you just don’t know
that you’re killing me
from the inside out


How don’t you know
how desperately
I simply
can’t let you go
You don’t see
but I’m not blind
i can feel
how youre
tearing me apart

sticks and stones
will break my sorry bones
but your words
are deadlier
than anything
i ve ever know
you just can’t see
you just don’t know
that you’re killing me
from the inside out
