~*The Big Hurt.*~
You have the least compassion for others
when you are hurt yourself
by one that you care about.
What has effected you has also touched them,
by your actions
that make you just as wrong
as the one that has hurt you.
Why is it ?
Out of hurt,
we always do wrong
to the one we love most?
They say, you always hurt the one you love.
The reason is, that is the one that loves you, too,
in most cases.
