having spoken before

having taken a moment to

think, having said something

so harsh & then in retrospect,

so quickly wanting to take it


paddling backwards with one’s

significant other, paddling

backwards & hoping that this

time they will not be so hurt

by what you have said that

they leave you high & dry,

wanting to make everything

ok again, wanting to make it

all hunky-dory, as if nothing

had ever happened---one

might go to great lengths to

pull a blanket over this

lashing out, but the fact

remains, each stab draws

blood & each drawing of

blood takes time to heal &

life is only so long,

we all may not stick around

for one who is constantly

out to drive a knife into us.
