Poem 44

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.
