Particularly Hurtful

Particularly Hurtful

If you knew the wounds
That I took in my wars;
If you knew the pain
The least of them caused;
If you knew that they
Still live unhealed;
If you knew that I
Carry them like babies;

And wear them like trophies. 

If you knew all this, and more,
You would think that
This little splinter of a word
That recently got wedged
Some place in my heart -

Particularly hurtful.
