Im a pin cushion for other peoples sharp 
insulting words,
no matter how small they think they are.
Everyone of them stabs me ,slaps meme 
in the face,
,punches me in the gut,
makes me think and cry at night,and 
analyze myself inside and out.
Its torture
every little letter forming big words that 
really hurt.

    A wonderful write. Sticks and stones can harm your bones. But harsh words can indeed do more. your poem reminded me of agonies now past. but at times still haunt me.

    Hey, lovely write Ebonique! Your image of a 'pin cushion'...ouch! That gotta hurt. Words can indeed cause alot of damage but once you learn to put them into perspective, their power over you diminishes greatly. Nice! Very nice!
