The Last Straw


If only you had not uttered that one sentence,

She would not be crying, hurting where it matters the most


Heart struck you bite your lip hoping

Your gripping teeth could tear

That senseless mouth of yours,

And retreat silently to your room.


No words can repair her heart now.

Time, more time, and love, and caring deeds only

Can turn back the clock, and help her move past

How much you just pained her.


β€œMy bright candle I apologize for snuffing out your light.

What I said I surely meant, but I did not foresee the hurt

And for that I wish I had turned my tongue

A thousand times before I moved to speak.”

  1. The potential pain of words is well evoked.
    A word said can never be unheard, yet so easily uttered. Funny in a sad way, how powerful speech can be when used without thought of how the other will perceive it, and of course it can be deliberate too.

    1. Thank you for stopping by and leaving me your feedback, Fionn πŸ™‚ thank you for reacting too. I agree with you on the power of speech. Sometimes, I so wish I had not spoken. It is a terrible feel, to know you are responsible for someone’s pain, even more so when you spoke accidently and not on purpose

    That is the sole reason why we should think before we speak. What we said when we are angry is usually what impacted others the most. While we said it due to our emotions, the intentions are clear of hurting the other party. How could we ever be forgiven when we had hurt them. It is up to them to decide on what type of punishment is suited for how hurtful it was. Thanks for the great post and much love.
