Such a Small, Silly Little Thing

It was such a small, silly little thing- 
hardly worth mentioning...
but how could I spew such vile, hateful words?
Cheeks flushed red, eyes cast down
she turned clumsily and stumbled away...
fading in the mist

It was such a small, silly little thing- 
hardly worth mentioning...
but how could I spew such vile, hateful words?
Cheeks flushed red, eyes cast down
I turned clumsily and stumbled away...
fading in the mist

It was such a small, silly little thing-
hardly worth mentioning...
but how could I spew such vile, hateful words
fading in the mist...

    Hi Tim, It's the little foxes that spoil the vine. Our mouths so small our words so huge. Great reflective write. You have wisdom in your pen. Congrats on your fine win, Tim!

    Congratulations on your win Tim. Sometimes we tend to spew stupidity. The best scenario, we don't ever do it again.

    This struck a cord.....how guilt can follow one throughout our lives. No small, silly thing......too often the small things are the giant things in retrospect. I like this poem a lot!

    Such is the potency of words Tim! 'forty years ago'- that got me. Note to self-be careful what you say - little doesn't seem little anymore. Nicely penned!

    I just love the way you did his contest theme. I hope I can come up with something, but i see I am running out of time!!! about my friendship poem, do you remember, it was meant to be talking of a girlfriend, though it was fictional nonetheless.

    Dear Tim - It's hard to let go of our most reprehensible moments. Forty years is a long time to be haunted. love, Kathy
