Poisoned Words

Poisoned Words

A Poem by RomaJ

I couldn't stop myself
The venom spewing from my mouth
Flowing like hot lava
Obliterating everything I loved
I hurt him.
I was more angry with myself
So tired of being hurt and
disappointed
Years of Toxins
Built over time
Left battery acid
On my tongue
Poisoning my words
I cradle my chest
Trying to stop my heart
From exploding
The sun
The bright shimmering sun
It's rays
Beckons me
The heat
Comforting
Trying to soothe
The inner turmoil
Of fiery ice
Raging inside
I stare out my window
Listless
Its serene setting
Mirrored the complete opposite
of the chaos
churning
inside my head
The guilt
Consuming
I can't even bring myself to cry

I appreciate your kind words
Once said you can never take back nor can the person you said them to forget them.
As you said, not only do the words hurt the other person they hurt you too. A great piece of writing :) If you have any spare time could you pop over and read maybe a little of my work? I joined yesterday and appreciate the feedback for my work, x K.
