MINEFIELD OF WORDS


Dark Angel Pictures, Images and Photos


it wasn't my intention
to speak those words
but there they were
exploding

from somewhere
deep, buried, hidden

even from me

a minefield
poised to release
poison arrows

maiming the recipient

you

drawing in breath,
sharply punctuated
by searing pain

watching you walk away
wondering if you will ever

forgive

return

not abhor me

may I perform triage
nurse your wounds
offer restitution

perhaps

amputate my tongue?

I would, I could

for I

am

sorry
