I Don't Care

splintered

three little words
said with so little thought
that it's not even worth it
to spell out the fourth

three unfeeling words
uttered by the unfeeling
so the hearer doesn't feel worth it
not worth their breath

three damaging words
repeatedly damaging
to the souls of all around
splinters felt by only those who still care

  1. So true. So much power in those three little words.

  2. Another set of powerful words, though, can overwhelm the damage done by the former: I love you. :)
