Sharp Tongues

Poetry By: dibbledabble

I was going to work on a humour story tonight, but then out of the blue this lodged its self in my brain. It is something I have written about before (Blankets) It a subject that is near to my heart.

I am sure that as writers and thinkers you will all concur with my thoughts.

Thank you to Blackmyst for prompting this poem by ways of a comment I was leaving them.

Sharp Tongues

.

The words slashed, cutting deep.

Thoughtless

Blunt as a hammer.

The knife so cleverly twisted

as to render the wielder innocent.

.

Indeed, they are righteous

Capitulation is the proof.

Dry mouthed, wet eyed

Inability is no defence

Deserved ineffectiveness

.

Deep cuts bare

Hammer blows hurt

Oh, the incisions and bruises

Fade quickly

But beneath the pain fester.

.

Bandaged in cruel words

Embalming in wretchedness

Buried in doubt, A half-life lives

Confused suppression exists

The meagre are vanquished

.

A clever tongue and wicked mind

Can drive a life to destruction

A poetic tongue and compassionate mind

Can guide a life towards fulfilment

Which carries more kudos?
