Words by JBF

Words by themselves innocuous

Words carelessly arranged and uttered

Enemies create

Apologies tendered
Meet with distaste

‘I was not upset.’
‘What gave you that idea?’

Words that excavate
Words that discomfort inflate

Words that damn
The lie that is your life.
Words that uncover your guile
To your unwilling eyes.

Silence, silence of discord
Hang over our desires and dreams
Like a rain cloud hovering
Over saturated streams.

Silence, screaming for redress

Wishing that words were left at rest
