Was It Worth it

Was It Worth it

A Poem by That_Guy
"

Words hurt, but not as much as I do when you hurt me

"
Was it worth it?
You talked your s**t,
Barked out words meant to cut
Then walked off and slammed the door shut.

Big dog now, walking tall,
Expecting me to lay down or fall.
You must not know me or who I am,
Because now I’m coming and I don’t give a damn.

The door didn’t even slow me down,
You’ll choke on those words or maybe drown.
Before you know it I’m in your face,
Your bark is big but my bite shakes the place.

Unleashed, undone, unruly, and unafraid.
You have no clue what you have done,
Maybe your talk to you was fun,
But now you’ll have to answer for that fit,
So tell me man, was it worth it?

Sorry for the expletive, but it needed to be put in. I'm really a nice guy but don't mistake my kindness for weakness

I go from Teddy bear to Grizzly bear pretty quick haha. I absolutely agree. Thanks again ;)
I don't THINK I commented on this one before...I could go on about personal associations but meh, I'll just stick with my compliments for this piece...I especially like the option of choking or drowning on one's own words...good comeback line, a versatile one too, as it can fired off in all sorts of confrontational contexts...as it pertains to me, I'm no martial artist but I have reduced idiots to tears with my bone-dry humour haha I also know how to wield a goalie stick but that's a whole other story...

Indeed, indeed^^
Pieces like these are well worth it. Sometimes they're our best, and we don't even have to try... I can't even express how much I love to read free forms like this, they don't even have to rhyme! They have a beauty all their own that no amount of structure can "fix" or "make better". Hope you feel better after this, glad to hear no s**t is being tolerated. Haha

Unleashed, undone, unruly, and unafraid.
You have no clue what you have done,

For some reason that is very very powerful

I loved this piece. I love the anger...but everyone is crazy when they are angry so it is okay to be angry sometimes. I really enjoyed reading this poem. It was nicely written and I loved the theme. :3

You're welcome brother!!
haha,epic!
Iloveit.

The anger in this and the urban style it is written in is just perfect!!
you come across a very humble down to earth guy with a limit.
I really like your style.
This piece is the most intimidating piece I have read so far on here.
Proud, very proud.

...that's the sixty-four-thousand dollar question: Was It Worth It??? I have often found the answer to be a resounding NO! But, man, do we keep throwing words and actions around like they have no consequence! I imagine that to be the ultimate deathbed revelation...with our last breath, we will discover, infinitely too late, that we should have just kept our big damn mouths closed. Well done, pet.
