Words Again


They dip and spin

Chase themselves round and through my head

Kestrels on an ocean breeze

Bats flying blind through a castle keep


We know their power

To uplift, sooth, hurt or wound

Sun illuminating a heart

Storm drowning the unwary

I will not speak words I do not feel

Never again will I be overcome by emotion

That undoes my words and lets them loose

Sets them like harpies upon the unsuspecting

Sends them in search of my psyche

A verbal boomerang launched in thoughtlessness

Seeking to come back and haunt me

Hurt me

With my own words…
