Worded Weapon

Worded Weapon short poem

Photo by Horia Varlan

Words are mighty weapons,
They lash you like a whip,
Cut like a knife,
Slicing you into pieces.

Pelt you like stones,
Making wounds so deep,
They leave a scar,
Forever in the heart.

They pierce you like arrows,
With a gnawing pain,
And leave you oozing,
That drain your soul.

Words make or break,
Causing much heartache,
Leaving scarred memories,
Tying you in knots.

The heart pounding,
Rip apart the core,
A spill of words,
A reaction of rile.

Dear Geetha wonderful so true poem, words once spoken cannot be called back after it leaves ones mouth, so each word is to be weighed before its spoken, more than the speaker it hurts the one at the receiving end…….at times we dont mean what we say but wrong meaning gets conveyed………words can have positive and negative consequences …….nice thought provoking poem……..loved it.


One should taste his own words before spitting out .

Poison Is A Woman’s Weapon

Poison Is A Womans Weapon short poem

Poison is a woman’s choice, When it comes to dealing death. Those able hands that ladle love, Can dribble death in dollop; Amative breasts can often sting, Bedaubed in aspine wreath. Poison is a woman’s choice, When it comes to
