Lurking In The Wings

 

Open you mouth, say a word,

you can’t be sure how it will be heard.

 

Will your meaning shine right through

or do you words misrepresent you.

 

Have you caused hurt, or some offence;

has it been taken in a different sense

 

than what you meant, what you intended;

have you caused some harm that can’t be mended.

 

Are your actions causing strain,

making someone go and complain;

 

you didn’t mean it, not that way,

something lurks, comes out to play.

 

You know it well, you’ve seen it often

in it’s approach it does not soften;

 

guilt, I’m talking, it will haul you in

and in it’s depths you’re left to swim.
