Lost in Bitter Words (poem)

Updated on September 5, 2015

What was it we repeated yesterday

Will mark a new improvement to our life

We must be somewhat weary of this strife

Do you imagine all of this a play


What emptiness will next spew from those lips

Will make a mother wish you were not born

We all have things held in a wish to scorn

Do not believe from you alone all slips


What kind of fool are you to carry on

Will all this bickering remove some sting

We scream and cannot hear our own shame sing

Do you not see what’s left when all is gone


With pity at our moments let’s reflect

Me thinks I’ve lost a person I respect

      Lovely poetry and yes, sorry has always been the hardest word to say.

      "You told it" like the young ones like to say. This is poetry with a message; and very well presented.

      The wounds caused by the words, by the words hardly would be cured; so we think twice before speaking once...

      Arguing can bring about words that sting for life and can't be taken back. Saying "I'm sorry" doesn't take away the pain or undo the deed.

      "What emptiness will next spew from those lips" - This was my favorite line. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.
