“My heart it hearts”
A bullet wound
Made from my words
The hurtful truth
I’ll plug it up
The best I can
I’m so sorry
Just squeeze my hand

I made my girlfriend really sad with something I said and I wrote this poem for her. I felt like a jerk then and I realized that words can hurt almost as much as bullets if said the right way.
