My World


Has been shattered....by
words.....bad words
that should have never been spoken …

I walk the beaches looking for a treasure
as I wipe back the tears …
hoping to find something that will
ease my broken heart …
maybe not today....
perhaps tomorrow....
or as many tomorrows there are
in this life time...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There are times when we become angry- -we regret that first sting of words- -that should never be spoken to one we hold so dear- -yet they burst out like a stream over flowing so fast - -we can, t take the words back- -or venting out loud. I have learned- -it best- to stop before the words have a chance to crush or harm another- calm down- then find a time to communicate with each other once the storm has cleared. We are our own lessons!

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
