The Sad Poem Cemetery

There is a place where words lie dead
And buried forever more
Hurting words, that someone said
That we've chosen to ignore

Words like cheater, adultery and liar
They simply no longer exist
Words found guilty, tried by fire
Words that won't be missed

Words like lonely, sad and grief
Are striken from our mind
Words like sorrow, heartbreak and thief
Words of every kind

Words like pain, tears and death
Will soon forever perish
The only words found on our breath
Are words like love, honor and cherish

Words like broken, lost and cry
Are no longer necessary
For all of these words will forever lie
In the sad poem cemetery

    Good one..Writing about hurts seem to help with healing though..Sometimes it helps someone with a similiar happening in their life to know that someone else in the work understands...Sara

    I like the thought of this as it is reality in my Christian belief. These words will not be used or needed in Heaven.

    Great idea Larry. Let's bury them deep. I like this one. Love, Joyce
