Why do you always hurt the ones you care about most?
I have the capacity to do and say hurful things.
Words spill from my lips freely
And cannot be taken back once said.
Words are very powerful things.
We do not use them wisely.
They come unguarded and slither in
And create a rift that is so very hard to mend.
I have brought hurt upon myself.
Words that were innocently spoken
Have been twisted till they have caused me pain.
I read feelings in that are not there.
Friendship felt so very lost
My heart was broken by my own hand.
I felt so very undeserving
And punished myself with the power of words.
Words can be soft and gentle.
They can also be harsh and cruel.
We must not allow them to go unguarded
we must not allow them to cause more pain.
Words, thoughts expressed
Feelings that are shared.
Hold tight to words that show love and care.
These are what need to be spoken.
