It is the little Things

It is the little things that hurt most

The single word uttered unknowingly, a throw away .

The building up of tiny hurts that your heart can  host.

They grow and grow shutting out the sun destroying your day

Try as you may to duck them or side step them  if you will

You can only hide for so long, then they will get hold of you

Taking the colour from your life  dragging you down down hill.

Small things hurt, don’t confide in your friends , they will just laugh at you

You can overcome the traumas and the disasters one hand tided behind your back.

Love lost love found , fortunes won and lost in the blink of an eye

The devil is always in the detail, it is  the  minutiae that lays you open to attack.

The little things hurt most, that off hand sideways look, that makes you scream at the sky………… Why.

    and there is no reply, .. Sweet Willow, Why? or Why Me? is never answered, for we all are prey to such hurts, for to love we leave ourselves open to hurt, to be immune is to live life behind glass, forever protected, sans emotion. We have the ability to hurt others, but we hold back, we care, ‘Tis a bl**dy shame all others are not so considerate.. hugs aplenty.. xPenx

    My dear Willow…. in answer to your query as to Why? the little things hurt more… it is simple physics…. a small, sharp edge or point is much more dangerous than a large, blunt one, because it sinks more deeply into the intended, or unintended, target (Sad to say, many injuries ARE caused by lack of attention, or indifference, rather than maleficent intent…). Large, blunt objects can also hurt, but never so sharply as the point of a pin, well placed…. ‘Tis the same with human emotions, my lady, as all perceptions are merely extensions or refinements of the sense of touch….. This is why it is so important to keep one’s skin thick, as well as supple, and quick to heal…. 😉 Blessed Be, milady, and let the hurt go, once it is acknowledged… don’t hang on to it longer than needed to learn the lesson it has to give us….

      You are so right in everything you say sir. I have learned that the quicker you let go of pain the quicker the wound heals, the less likely poison is to set in and eat you up. It was wonderful to hear your exploits on ths side of the pond but it is equally good to know you are home safe. Thank you for your wise wordsxxxxxx

    little things matter like a sticker bur, a mosquito or a bullet…or a kind word from a friend … (~_~)

    A little piece of sky
    cannot be obliterated
    by rain clouds.
    Thunder and hail
    do what you may
    for this little piece of sky
    will remain happy and gay.
