Words can make all the difference.
Laced with venom, dripping with sarcasm, drunk with affection.
Overused. Understated.
We often stay silent, too afraid to commit verbal suicide.The plunge- that if we take, no return. Often pondering, over thinking. Risk it all or lose everything? Too expensive words have become. Easy as breathing, safe within our thoughts. Glass warfare; beauty becomes disfigured. Murdering one another with simple syllables. The scars are permanent reminders. The worst someone can say is no, right?

The author's comments:
Words can hurt and burn just as much as anything physical,but it's the emotion and power we put into those words that tear us apart.
