Words; spoken so hastily.
Words; voiced so insolently.
Words; uttered without regard to consequences.
They hurt, these words.
They shatter dreams, these words.
They burn a hole in the heart, these words.
Words; they cannot be unsaid.
Words; they have dark impacts.
Words; they strangle the soul.
They can heal too, some words.
They are used to reconcile the remark, some words.
They show penitence, some words.
Then that one word is whispered.
Hoping to set everything right.
