Sharp as Swords

Your words
Sharp as swords
Purposely you say
Them you do not weigh
Aiming to derogate
For unknown reasons, me you hate

Your words
Sharp as swords
They shake me up
They break me down
Constantly on loop
In my mind now they play

Your words
Sharp as swords
I replay them again
And rises inside a sharp pain
My day is spoilt, and so is my mood
Inside I sit and relentlessly brood

Your words
Sharp as swords
You called me to meet
And with your words, you mistreat
Didn’t take you minutes at all
To find within me unknown faults

Your words
Sharp as swords
Play, replay
They constantly go on
If only
You would have stopped
To think and weigh

Your words
Sharp as swords
May be it’s in your nature
To not nurture
But merely cause hurt
Your words
Yes !
They were sharp as swords

  4. Before speaking anything, people should learn to feel the consequences of those words by considering themselves as the listener ... don't know why some people are so immature :/

  5. People never think twice before saying things that can hurt. The wounds inflicted by these words, never heal. Nice one, Jyotsna! :)

  6. spoken words once spoken can never be brought back and the effect they may have on others can be drastic sometimes.. no wonder our forefathers or elders always told us to speak carefully
