A Few Words - Poem by Unwritten Soul

A few words
Could bring more than a sound
Touch the ears turn wry to golden smile
or sharper than a glass to cut into pieces

Winding up a road between us
Separating emotions out of mind from the case
Would be wrong to let ego reign the grace
How ignorant sometimes heart could be?
Deaf two ears, and blinding opened eyes
Pretend the silence is your voice
Avoiding you is not a choice

A curse of few words
Lead a way to stray from the truth
A plead for apologizing replied by ignoring
A few words used for fighting and shouting and hurting
Standing still but beautifully broken
I looked into your eyes and surprised
In a mirror of a story without lies
Heard...listened a word...'sorry'
Encodes a meaning of 'Forgive me'
No, your lips tightly sealed
It is your voice within sent to me

A few words
I used as the sharp glass tease
Cut you deeply, and you bleed
Saw it all behind the naked eyes
But you still standing to hold me
Never mind how wrong i can be
How i can find a magic in a few words
To heal your pain stained and clot
Regretting how wrong i did to you
To believe unreal and count your tears
I never thought so hurtful this way
When i thinking of myself it linking to you
I hurting myself whenever i hurt you

A few words
I tried to search for proper sorry
Would you blind your eyes, deaf two ears?
Words crime sound nothing but now i fear?
It fears me as i don't to lose you
...Forget the past and start a new
we never meant to be hurt...
You replied with A few words
In form of softness creating golden smile
Your sweet words neutralize the voice of bile
I learned how to speak when i was a child
But just understanding 'A few words' now

Lesson of learning to understand
If i can turn back each time i hurt you
Will avoid this bruises stamp on you
Now, between this winding road
As i standing at the aisle of choices
Picking either Emotions or Mind
Decided to fuse, balance these two
A relevant choice for not to hurt you
Sanity tell all to me,
We meet not to wait this end
We born to be happy till the end of time

A few words
Powerful or hurtful
Time to choose...

The twisted story just for a write to point what
words can do..for me it's better silent than let
people hurt by our words, unless we make say it better

    Indeed, few words could sometimes indicate thousand meanings and implications to the human understanding rather long words but empty. (Report) Reply

    How way to construct, but also how easy our heart? maybe we just need to tell what is inside...
    Thanks Sixtus for your time and mind to understand this piece :)

    There is sweet in words as well as poison too, it depends upon the uses of a person. A word with smile and sweet can win hearts. Words those flow from mouth or from pen have the power of creation or destruction. Words those are not used properly bring grief, misunderstanding and fighting. It is better to keep silence than to deliver messy words. Dear Soul, you have so nicely inscribed this fact here. Let me quote some lines... Misunderstanding
    A curse of few words
    Lead a way to stray from the truth
    A plead for apologizing replied by ignoring
    A few words used for fighting and shouting and hurting
    I appreciate this poem. Thanks for sharing.

    Sugar is sweet but kill silently if we addicted to it....to thirst of sweet things is killing too, as much as we may miss the other true taste in life..Thanks dear Sir, to say bad words i guess hold it first, to take care of hearts is more important....understanding is what we lost in many events...i think to be wise is not by replying but to understand and to console ourselves first before anything else...Thanks again :)

    Hurtful words can create so much agony for years after leaving a person insecure and fearful, loving words create comfort, build self esteem and a more positive person but we all have to have belief of who we are as people to defeat the slings and arrows of fate! Silence of deep reflection and a secure, loving belief in who we are is the answer to the hurt and pain of the past! Creative, insightful and beautiful write! ! (Report) Reply

    You definitely write Hazel, i am not the strongest one to kill all worries, or to win all fights physically and mentally...i just want us, all of us to be great by linking hearts with such a great words. Harmony as if way we talk paradise, briing it on earth when we talk.. :)

    Silence is golden. And words spoken...more golden. I have been hurt by words. And I have become stronger. I have been praised with words. And have become humbler. I have worked with words. And my poetry slowly improves. I have read your words. And see that my adventure mysteriously unfolds. Your poem is profound and espouses such wisdom. A great write! A joy to behold! (Report) Reply

    Your words even make the poem stand stronger because of kindness in you.. Every worda you gave here is a lesson for me, they are collectively the golden deco that are among beautiful words. Thanks. :)

    So much meaning here, Soul. You made think of how many times just a few words, well chosen, had the power to do what many, many lines failed to accomplish. Pick those words judiciously, as you suggest. The power behind those words can wound, - or heal. A great poem. A 10. (Report) Reply

    Hi dear MJ Lemon, merci! ...We dont have to be royal warrior to keep the peace between people, because words and kindness will do way better without even a hair fall out.hahahahhaa....to heal is always than to make a wound right...and your words here not heal but make me better because no wound you made...always keep me lift up all the time! Thanks for that :)

    I have a comment reached to my email (july 29th 5: 17pm local time) and when i checking to the website it was removed/missing.. So i would like to send it again to respect the question he/she asking
    Hello, Ma''am! I Have a couple of questions. What does this poem do for the greater good? Will this poem help in some way to bring or usher in World Peace? Thank you for taking the time to answer my question! Have a wonderful day. May God bless you :)

    If you are there reading this, Thank you dear for your question :) , Hi I'm soul and i would like to respond to your question above..what does the poem did for better good? actually it just a writing where i am thinking that words and mouth are the things that always bring us to some level, either good or bad...here i was just expressing that it could be dangerous to use if we are not knowing/understanding it properly...as human we do mistakes and to me to say sorry or to forgive is better rather than we exchanging fuel and burn our peaceful life..and all behind of this misunderstanding and not willing to understand/ to respect...but to answer what the poem did for better good its depend, what i did here is just writing and share my thought in a way i love to do as a peace lover.. So to me it just my thought, but people are free to think either think it deeper or just read it.. because someone thought is not to force to fit in others but it is a free idea to discuss...and about to make world peace by this poem..wow it wonderful if it can be one, but again we cant write to be a hero, but we can write it for discuss... Writing is a part of sharing thought, that it can be good and bad because as we know it may contains A few words... definitely if we love peace, we use peaceful words and loving way to express to people...yet its not our power to change the whole world by only a poem...but i hope the thought i share can seed some positive reminder that words can be good or bad, and whatever evolve around us is started by how we manage it. Thank you again for your question, i appreciate it. Thank you for reading mine and your sweet wishes, May God bless you too with beautiful day and night :) Hope i answer you well
