Words.

They can heal a broken heart ,

Mend the soul ,
Encourage those who need ,

Comfort the sad ,

They can hurt , Words

discourage us.

Put you down as if you're six feet under

unable to breathe ,

One sentence or two ,

it doesn't matter

words hurt , their impact , great,

The words coming out of your mouth

telling me i'm wrong ,

slip out like eels swimming

in the dark ocean that is our lives ,

We want to build each other up

not tear each other down ,

yet being who we are ,

we continue to tear ,

and rip

apart the heartsb,

with our words,

decapitating

our bodies

deep within us

we can tear ourselves apart

just as easily as we can tear each other apart.

words are our

 

destruction.
