Faucet

Faucet

A Poem by Brenda Woods
"

think i left the faucet running / now my words are filling up the tub

"
my mouth is a faucet
words like water flowing
off my tongue too quick
and i know i was wrong
know that i hurt you
and i promise next time
i will shut down my mind
and turn that faucet off

...i like this idea...
but I wonder what flowed out of that faucet,
probably not water
...unless it was just wasting the preciousness of it away

oh to turn our mouths off- it is such a hard thing to do.
have you heard the toothpaste metaphor about our words... yeah try to get it back in the tube once they are pushed out, good luck.

Thank you :)
I hadn't heard that metaphor! Definitely a very fitting one, though.

Hard to shut off the faucet when thoughts are flying around your brain. Great metaphor. Yes, words can hurt and once they are said, they can not be taken back. I liked this one. Lydi**

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
This poem is filling up the tub perhaps, but not flowing as well as water.

Ok effort,but not especially praiseworthy.
