Silent cries

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me"

why does she starve herself?

you're fat

those are just words

why does she hate what she sees in the mirror?

you're ugly 

those are just words

why is he afraid to speak in class?

you're stupid you studder

those are just words 

why does he wish he was dead?

you're worthless kill yourself 

those are just words

why does she cries as she stares at the computer screen

you're a slut 

if those are all just words why do they hurt so much?
