Words, Words

When said in anger.

Could I for one bite my tongue
and simply leave things unsaid
Why did I have expunge those words
that were festering inside my head?

Emotions at time could be desirable
but at times a menace they are
If looks could kill, so can words
and leave many a silent scar

But I said them brazenly anyway
without a twinge of regret
with pride my mouth defecated them
with a stink that I cannot forget

Moments later my ego deflated
with it fell down all my pride
Could I not have restrained myself
I can now in shame only hide

The End
