Soft… #poetry

Soft

Do not speak, when words clash
They cause pain, disbelief, start wars
Like tiny arrows, they find a target
Causing wounds to fester
Flip the coin, gentle soft-spoken words
Can soothe, take down giants
Crying babies sleep to a few hushed words
Sung in tune to a lullaby
Which would you rather
put you to sleep?

ABOUT US: For those new to our website and blog, we would like to thank you for visiting. Between us, we write in several different genres, so there should be something for everyone to enjoy. Anita cannot abide computers, so I (Jaye) do all the technical (oily rag) stuff! Our books tend to be varied, from horror to supernatural romance and coming of age, and mystery thrillers.  We try to keep our website interesting with guest posts, bloggers, poetry, and reviews for all the books we read. Our books are shown in the right-hand sidebar and clicking on the images should take you straight to Amazon.

Hoping to see you again!
