Poem- Words from your heart

Words from your heart

Escape your lips

Hang momentarily in the air

Then are forced back by the headwind

Blown through your hair


A few appear to get caught

As they hold on for dear life

Eventually losing their grip

And bouncing quickly across the ground

As if chasing their friends



Never to be heard again

A short glance back

Apprehension sinks in

Will what has been lost

Haunt thee and prove


To be a valuable piece of the map

They could have lead you

Out of this dense forest of thorns

Now you stand here unaccompanied

And forlorn

  1. I like the page and the write. I wish there times I could actually reel back a few words I have spoken, s maybe it evens out in the end. Some words never reach their mark and some do that we wish we hadn’t said.

  2. rather sad there in the end…do love the imagery of the words blown back through the hair…and trying to cling…in the briars alone sounds like a lonely place though…

  3. I think so many words are lost like this. Thrown to the wind, when they could mean so much in how things turn out in our life. You have caught one of those moments as a reminder to remain aware of what might stray too far and become a mishap in our lives or the lives of others.

  4. i always think it’s sad when the words have already made it from heart to lips….(which can be a long way….) and then get blown aways by the wind of circumstances or discouragement or whatever it is…and they are never to be heard…nicely penned…

  5. This reminds me of the secne from Snow White where it was all thorns and dark.
