Useless Words That Need Not Be Uttered - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

pity, sympathy,
illwill, backbites,
fear, rage, anger,

need you utter them?
to the man drunk with his failures
(or even success)

do not, they serve no purpose
but to make pain more serious,
seeping, penetrating pain

just a tap,
a hug,
an embrace, a gentle gaze,
a shake of the hand,
or just sitting beside him

in silence, , , , , , , , ,
