Verbal Beatdown - Poem by Catherine Hendry

Slapping you with thoughts,
Punching you with words,
Enjoying this fight that MUST be fought,
Choking you with feelings, till you see little birds …
Blacking your eye with sheer strength of my mind!
Begging … you attempt to prove your loyal devotion...
Snapping your bones with the shortest sentence I could find,
Slitting your throat with raw emotion,
According to this sequence of events …
I just kicked your ass with mere intelligence! !

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Tis' far better to beat someone in your mind and/or with words... than to hurt someone physically! Though bones and bruises heal, words are FOREVER!
