These Words


These Words

These words

From someone who mattered

These words

Leaving a desire shatters

These words

Wishing they were untrue

How could they be uttered

By someone like you?

Spat out and muttered

These words



Unable to suppress the thought

These words

Leaving me drained

Unable to explain

What just took place

These words

Widening the gap

That separates us

So close yet miles away

These words

Dropped like a ton of bricks

Leaving me numb

soulwriter commented on These Words


Words are so powerful - sometimes cutting deeper than any surgical knife... though most of us have the power inside to heal from verbal abuse or the misuse of sylalables and sentances of hate. We all have to find our own words - to use them well and to love with them! "These words Unretractable Non-refundable" - great word usage - with strong flow of meaning! 10 Soul

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
