Unwritten Soul


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

Misunderstanding,
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

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
You............Silence
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

Misunderstanding
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

    there is few words
    live in the heart of unspoken

    but the silent
    now become Mt. Himalaya

    the few words
    now quench the thirsty heart for wisdom

    the few words
    now show the path of solution

    but all through goodness taciturn....(Report)Reply

    Words are one of the most powerful force we can avail of. We can use constructively or destructively. Words have the power to heal and to harm, to humble and humiliate. We have a choice how to use it. We should utilize it for friendship and to spread love for humanity. This magnificent piece captures it all. An encompassing beautiful write about words.10(Report)Reply

    Wow, unwritten indeed all it does it take is a few words or the lack of them in some cases.
    The ghosting concept comes to mind. I will ignore you so I don't have to hurt you. But it hurts more and tends to confuse.(Report)Reply

    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
    You............Silence
    I appreciate this poem. Thanks for sharing.(Report)Reply

    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 :)

    Thank you Adilson, your generous words made me smile but i am sorry that i am not that marvelous writer, i am humbly say that i have nothing as compared to poets here and there. What i have shared only the living thoughts that birth through my thoughts, witnessed by eyes and senses... The Narrator, Remi Anderson was kind enough to read my work, yes he did great thing reading by his own interpretation, wish him best and you too, as well to all my friends that always keep supporting me though high and low. It keep me right place to go :)
