Wisdom Decrees Caution - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

wisdom decrees
we with caution speak
words spoken cast

lasting or lost impressions...

words anger hurled
cannot be winched back
damage is done instant

damage is done irretrievably...

stake pierces heart
love personalities death
husk never resurrected

apology tears wash out no words...

animated never again
firm bonded friendships
wither leaf fall fallen
