A Cutting Tongue Has She

Iíve been known  
To write  
And speak  
Angry  

Words spewing †
Like a powder keg  

Exploding  
While Iím imploding  

Words are a dangerous weapon †

Impulsiveness †
Used to be  
My go-to  

Lashing out  
Tearing down  
Destroying  
In mere seconds †

Only to  
Pick up the pieces  
In the aftermath  
Of my chaos †

Iíve tempered a bit  

Taking time †
To pause  
Before I act  
A welcome relief  

Holding my tongue  
Is a  
Learning process  

Iím going  
To stumble †

Iíll end up  
Attempting to retract  
Once in a while †

Please be patient with me

Itís probably †
Always going  
To be there  
Right on the tip †
Of my tongue

Iím sure
I could still
Cause damage

I just donít want to anymore
