Danger of words

Poem by: Ian Dawn

Summary

It is a homage to all those of us that have been hurt by a simple word or misplaced sentence. Thanks to a fellow booksie writer who inspired this as I wrote a comment on a poem.

Words cut deeper than the knife we wield,

 They will often break thru our emotional shield.

 

Why bother to use a weapon from the start,

When a well placed word will break my heart.

 

A wound will heal in time so they say,

But a verbal dagger cut will never go away.

 

Why choose a bullet to destroy my brain,

When a well chosen word, will drive me insane.

 

How can I love you when your words besiege?

Deeper than any sword or knife could reach.

 

Even tho nothing of what you say is real,

Try as I might these wounds will just not heal.

 

So it is with survival in mind that I must say

You need to leave me to die and go away
