Simple Words

In this land of broken hearts
where love dies as quickly as it starts
and children live and laugh and cry,
and some, earlier than usual, die

Where the fate of one being
all depends on the meaning
of simple, little words and phrases
that can bruise arms and cut faces

So deep and swiftly
that it happens too quickly
for any eye to actually see
the pain that does envelope me

And all of you who know of what I speak
when simple words make your life seem bleak,
thinking that it'll hurt more if you lie
but in reality, a simple truth can cause a soul to die.
