    Barbara,

    Your poem is beautiful.How difficult it is to admit mistakes and it's even more difficult to feel the consequences of our acts and attitudes...words are terrible weapons, cut like swords...sometimes what rests for the one who hurts is only the lament.
    Love and kisses

    Thank you Barbara for this stark, open feelings poem. Hind sight is always 20/20 and we regret later what we say in the heat of the moment. Then we want to apologize to the person we hurt with our words. This is a very heartfelt, and very deep poem about feelings and remorse for what was said. You did very well writing this, Barbara, and I am giving you a 10 for this. Again, thank yuo for sharing.

    Love & hugs,
