Hammer and Tongs

Hammer and Tongs

Words are like daggers stabbed thru like a dart, with no time for regret when they enter the heart.. savagely, splenetic in a moment of madness.. spat out in a battlement of brutally badness..wickedly, wrongly yelled out in a rage, like a lioness scorned stuck in her cage

Venomous, vindictive whilst viciously said, shouting obscenities out of one’s head..a mouth full of malice out of control, without time for pre thought when it’s on a roll.. only when one has run out of things to say, after the rift is over and they’ve gone away.. then the pain of it all comes to one’s mind, what was actually said was unnecessarily unkind.. eventually calmness and sanity prevails, but you’ve hit far too hard like hammering nails

Tempers are impetuous, all out on a whim..going in off the deep end, falling down off the brim..hasty and headlong yet not logically true, but those words made you feel better screamed out of the blue.. going on at each other like hammer & tongs, both parties were victims with too many wrongs.. but not one of us is saintly and salt of the earth, we are capable of cracking and giving our worth.. so don’t worry if this episode has happened to you, temper’s are impulsive and this is nothing new

Hi Jill....This write made me hurt...I absolutely hate confrontations and fighting...and I shut down when harsh words come...I emotionally shut down. I like to try to reason,  Those words stay in my head and hurt me and make me feel insecure...Positive words and understanding are what this world needs...and I wish people would learn to abstain from hurting others...I really do...Those scars stay....Great honest write. xo ;)

I am so sorry, Jill...Hang in there.  When people hurt, they say things to the extreme that they would not normally say, but do in their pain.  It still hurts though, I know.  You are a lovely soul, and have a loving heart that is obvious....Stay true to who you are and how others react is on their own conscience.  Cling to truth....(((Hugs))) xo
