When Words Are Thorns


Little words can fall into the ears
Of those of misunderstand, hate and anger
Will block the throat tight
Stick to the mind hard
Break the heart into pieces

Its just a moment to check am I really wrong or right?
When on a shock, wouldn’t move the lips
Not cos iam weak
Nor iam meak
Or couldn’t speak
Cos iam not from animal world or cultureless

Seems everything is dark, unclean, unperfect
It can turn the world upside down
Its hard to breathe
It suffocate to eat
Its painful to open the tiny eyelid.

Like an invisible ice balls of fire struck in my throat
So strong could only swallow it
hide the flooding emotion
Give a fake smile
Walk erect home
But couldn’t digest it when i lie on the bed
I don’t claim iam only right but fact is iam not wrong
You never walked my path
Believed all false
Judged me wrong
What ever it may be words you pricked was not right
Cos every coin has other side to shine.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
