Image for the poem When Words Fail....

When Words Fail....

Words hurl heedlessly, as if †
vocal jabs canít rupture a heart †
and cause a soul to bleed †
You should taste your salty sentiments, †
sweeten your words before they disrupt the air. †
Malicious words can expose you; †
revealing an ugly internal you †
So, †
donít be so reckless with them, like they †  
donít dull the sparkle from a smile that once was †
becauseÖ. †
a poisonous tongue can spit words †
that sound like death, †  
leaving residue of itís wrongdoing †  
and no amount of Iím sorrysí and warm apologies.... †
can wash them clean †
