She said a word
in the cool of the night
he heard it wrong
now there’s heat and there’s spite
now a word can be handled
with love and with care
but another can be
flung like a dagger in the air
but the word wedges deeper
than the dagger ever will
it will cut and will carve
to see more than blood spill
oh to be misunderstood
in the heat of the night
no more love understanding
they were ready for a fight

The power of words are unimaginable let alone if they are misunderstood…Nice one.
glad to see your sunny face – better???
Wonderfully written. The blend of this is a good impact of the words….*sigh…sometimes the words in misunderstanding can very well “cut deep”
thanks my dear – sometimes any of us can be sorely misunderstood
Too bad we can live our lives like a small Hollywood sitcom…if we got the lines wrong…we’d just reshoot the shot until it turned out right….but we cannot so sometiimes as in you other poem I read tonight…we long for our youth…when things were simpler…loved both of these poems…you made me recall moments now and in my past…thanks for the array of memories.
I like the re-do idea. Too bad life can’t be re-done eh??
a wonderful poem, my dear, as always (:
arguments are never nice, but we work past them, don’t we?
“no more love understanding
they were ready for a fight”
true, oh so true…
all my love to the moon, via the stars that glitter (:
yes hopefully – sometimes misunderstanding is it tho
I’ve been exploring for a litlte bit for any high quality articles or blog posts on this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this website. Reading this info So i’m glad to convey that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly what I needed. I most without a doubt will make sure to do not omit this website and give it a look regularly.
Surprisingly well-written and informative for a free online article.
it seems sometimes in the heat of the moment our emotion and passion dictates our response…which is not always the best…
that emotion can really hurt those we love
Nice, Leslie. Words have such power. They can cut or heal, and the effects can last a lifetime. We would be wise to be cautious how we fling them about.
Sometimes our emotions get the better of us, and the building fire drives us to things we do not really want. In but an instant, words can cut us clean through. As you say:
“but the word wedges deeper
than the dagger ever will”
Well put, and well written. A wonderful, if saddening, poem.
We can fight anger but sometimes misunderstandings just leave us hurt and bewildered…
“…to see more than blood spill…”
it can be quite painful
