Pernicious Words From Your Heart

Horrible words spoken
They never go away
So much wanted to say
They would only hurt the one who speaks them
I hold them all. . . those spoken and those restrained
I will write them down
Burn those that were flailed at me with hostility
I shall burn those that were deleterious to my heart
I will repress the words I thought and bury them deep in the soil
I will not lower myself to be like you
I will not allow your dispiriting words to take me to where you are
I refuse to live in a dark place because of your words

I will walk away from you happy

I know where you're coming from. It's hard work to put those vicious words where they belong, and not let someone else's poison soak into us.
You're doing great girl!!

speaking of divorce,and hard words. John McCain is used to trading in older women for younger ones.
Before anyone votes for this man they need to read about his divorce.
