my words sometimes sting.

my words sometimes bite.

there is really no excuse


justification as to why.


i certainly do know better;

how to be courteous and kind


there are times when the stinger pokes out –

as if it ‘needs’ to speak its mind.


this nasty little weapon

that lives inside of me –

is neither a friend or a foe.

‘they’ simply co-exist

to play

quite foolishly.


my heart loves and forgives

yet still struggles deep inside.

– in conclusion – 

i am someone who should shut up


essentially hide.

    Don’t ever shut up or hide we would miss you too much. 🙂

    I agree, to shut up and hide would be a sad time for all. But i do understand the feeling, sometimes we all wish we had done just that.

    No, no, no, don’t shut up nor hide! 🙂

    Oh no, never change yourself, I hear myself sometimes and wonder, but then, I think to myself, ’tis me, accept it. We say the truest words when we don’t consider what we say. xx

    just remember no matter what you may say out of internal hurts – those who love you will continue to love you. Those who don’t – never did in the first place…

    We like what you do so keep doing it.

      Thank you;). xx

        I should have at least said “please.”

    Do not shut up and hide!! You are my Muse you can’t leave! lol That was my selfish attempt at a joke. But seriously, please don’t leave your poems always touch me in one way or another. I think we all have that stinger that comes out to attack every now and again. Unfortunately, the stinger can sometimes be provoked. I really hope you stay here with us…you would be sorely missed!

      Hey there. You needn’t worry about me going anywhere. My silence is more about me not communicating with someone that I love more than life and who has quit on me due to his

      Hit sent before i was done. It is complicated. But I have developed a snarky mouth that is truth, but I suppose some people do not like the truth. xx

    Snarky sometimes makes me feel better. Speaking your mind can be liberating.

  • 14. WB  |  July 1, 2013 at 12:41 am

    Do not hide, you would only be hiding from yourself. Great post.

    • 15. words4jp  |  July 1, 2013 at 2:09 am

      Thank you for reading. I know hiding is not a good thing but sometimes I really should. But when it comes to my writing – this voice I cannot silence.

      • 16. WB  |  July 1, 2013 at 2:31 am

        That’s good.

  • 17. mindretrofit8  |  July 1, 2013 at 1:59 am

    These “words” definitely feel familiar. You captured such great emotion and flow with this.

    “this nasty little weapon

    that lives inside of me –

    is neither a friend or a foe.

    ‘they’ simply co-exist

    to play

    quite foolishly.”

    Oh, how these truly resonate. 🙂

      Thank you very much. You are very sweet. I suppose we all have a snarky side – mine is one I embrace sometimes a bit too often. But for me it is truth – and some people care not to hear the truth.

  • 19. limseeyee  |  July 1, 2013 at 9:04 am

    Mind follow me too??

    • 20. words4jp  |  July 1, 2013 at 12:14 pm

      Of course:)

    You send “stingers” and I send “zingers”…oh how words can get us into trouble! One day our hearts will stop struggling because we will find that peace we’ve been looking for all these years!
