Careless Whisperer

Rating: 4.6
Dear careless whisperer,
Some sharings are dagger-edged
and there is no escape when they're turned on you
no countermagic for the soul crushing embarrassment
dropped as if from a great height.
Did you hear the gun-shot thunderclap of confidence
leaving the room?

Loved this poem. The world is so treacherous, life so unpredictable. One may stop to think whether Sun would rise tomorrow!

Careless whispers can be deadly. I really like this poem. I have five poems, but they are not activated yet. Why does it take so long for a new poet? Some of them were posted three days ago! Did that happen to you when you started?
