Simple words can tip even
The bravest over the edge
The strongest can fall at unwarranted words and
Crumble to a mess.
The words that do not understand
The person to whom they’re spoken
The recently bereaved or trauma’d body
A body heartbroken.
It drives irrational desires to be acted
Pushing the boundaries of sane and safe
Biting words offhandedly delivered
The breaking point is met.
