Words - Poem by Jody Renee Pantiga

Words may not
Tear flesh, break bones
The way sticks do

They sneak under
The defenses
Leaving you bleeding
From the heart.

Words may not
Pull the trigger alone
But can be they catalyst
To the one holding the gun.

Words may not
Stab you with steel
But prick even harder
Depending on who utters what...

Words may not
Be of a physical essence
But still the fact remains
Words may be deadly
When used to harm.
