Assault and Pepper

I'm sorry I'm not sorry,
nor drowning with regret;
you're not my worry, you see this surely!
I'm more likely to forget
the significance of your insignificance,
like a shark would mind a flea;
or a raindrop to a mountain top
that fell haphazardly.

    About that raindrop...it landed smack dab between my eyes. Haphazardly or not; one shark bite of a write.

    My dogs hate fleas, if a shark had one how would it scratch it?

    This is great! I think words can hurt worse than any sticks or stones and this was a fabulous smack in the face :) Loved it and a bit sorry the battle is over...for this time at least :)

    After 20 years of love and hate, chances are it will likely continue. Only we know how to wound one another as deeply as we do and have. Our scales of love and hate are always in flux, as they ever have been!

    This is fun! If enough raindrops got together that mountain top would sing a different tune.

    All the years we go through life. Just trying to avoid the strife. The architect's dig up the truth. We're decending mountain's from our youth. Thanks for stopping by Just. Love all your play with word's. Peace. :)

    I love it when you "channel." You make me sit back, smile, and say "daaaaaang." lol Of course I also love the fact that I never know who you're talking about b/c then it will never take away from the light-hearted way I take the piece! ;)

    Thanks, FJ; I have my best friend to thank for all this. But she's more like a sister and worst enemy, which is why our friendship has endured for 20 years and I hope it continues for 20 more even though I don't deserve it.
