It's so absurd

Updated on September 4, 2014

Emotions make us children

When we should rise above

We hurt one and other

Just because we are in love

Loose tongues and poison words

When we should know best

Playing dangerous games

With a bond that needs no test

Then for days we tip toe

Afraid of every word

Love tangled us together

We're strong it's so absurd

Living in a hearts hangover

Our heads all in a daze

Waiting for the clouds to pass

To feel loves warm rays

      "Living in a heart's hangover". What a great way to describe the hurt love can bring. I've always said the tongue is the sharpest weapon. You can't take back hurtful words, no matter how much you apologize.
