Crushing Blow

The deterioration in his face it was like
 a withered rose in winter 

What she said to him felt like a shard
of metal go through his heart 

The harsh words of thee 
could tare down any soul
but they're people out there
who do not understand the 
crushing words the put 
into hand 

How could people be so mean
and the hurt this poor wonderer 
constantly feels 

he try's not to show the 
unmerciful hurt But I can 
see right through it because 
 I am the hurt

    Hi. Clever write and well used words. The use of terms from a slightly older time adds feeling to this excellent work. Eamon
