Unwritten Soul

A Few Words - Poem by Unwritten Soul

A few words
Could bring more than a sound
Touch the ears turn wry to golden smile
or sharper than a glass to cut into pieces

Winding up a road between us
Separating emotions out of mind from the case
Would be wrong to let ego reign the grace
How ignorant sometimes heart could be?
Deaf two ears, and blinding opened eyes
Pretend the silence is your voice
Avoiding you is not a choice

A curse of few words
Lead a way to stray from the truth
A plead for apologizing replied by ignoring
A few words used for fighting and shouting and hurting
Standing still but beautifully broken
I looked into your eyes and surprised
In a mirror of a story without lies
Heard...listened a word...'sorry'
Encodes a meaning of 'Forgive me'
No, your lips tightly sealed
It is your voice within sent to me

A few words
I used as the sharp glass tease
Cut you deeply, and you bleed
Saw it all behind the naked eyes
But you still standing to hold me
Never mind how wrong i can be
How i can find a magic in a few words
To heal your pain stained and clot
Regretting how wrong i did to you
To believe unreal and count your tears
I never thought so hurtful this way
When i thinking of myself it linking to you
I hurting myself whenever i hurt you

A few words
I tried to search for proper sorry
Would you blind your eyes, deaf two ears?
Words crime sound nothing but now i fear?
It fears me as i don't to lose you
...Forget the past and start a new
we never meant to be hurt...
You replied with A few words
In form of softness creating golden smile
Your sweet words neutralize the voice of bile
I learned how to speak when i was a child
But just understanding 'A few words' now

Lesson of learning to understand
If i can turn back each time i hurt you
Will avoid this bruises stamp on you
Now, between this winding road
As i standing at the aisle of choices
Picking either Emotions or Mind
Decided to fuse, balance these two
A relevant choice for not to hurt you
Sanity tell all to me,
We meet not to wait this end
We born to be happy till the end of time

A few words
Powerful or hurtful
Time to choose...

The twisted story just for a write to point what
words can do..for me it's better silent than let
people hurt by our words, unless we make say it better

    Wow. A powerful poem with a powerful message. Wounds from words often take longer to heal and can reopen more easily than physical wounds. Words of kindness give a balm which is longer lasting and can provide so much comfort. Very, very well written. (Report) Reply

    Words matter too much, a few words can tear a person apart, a few words can turn a life to art.

    Few words are good enough for any best or worst thing. Words meant for lives. The poet wrote,

    wow! I wasn't expecting this. It has great depth and the feelings and thoughts are so well sustained right through a longer poem. There are some very beautiful lines... As I standing at the aisle of choices is my favourite but it's a close run thing with many others. An easy ten for my Unwritten Soul

    but sadly others chose to use hurtful words without thinking how it would affect others feelings. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes words are not enough to overcome emotion
    Sometimes ego coloring interpretation of the one who should hear the truth
    And all got too complicated to be unbind

    an epic on human relationship that got shattered by the vain ego..this is how i would like to assess this beautiful poem.ego is the main barrier on our way of establishing a successful communication.the sad thing is we all are victims of this vicious ego (Report) Reply

    Yeah something you decided.
    It may reflects to my words too. Because I myself far away from politeness.
    It is subject to thing about hurting myself & hurting others
    To make deep about it I have to go more deep about this poem
    I wants to read all of your work & note my will on it
    But I am too small to come up to you (Report) Reply
