Ripple

A pebble in a pond,

a rock in the ocean

turns ripples over glass

into roaring waves of motion.

 

To speak from the heart

Is a different ideal

than to throw around words,

make wounds too deep to heal.

 

When you toss a stone,

You have no idea in mind

of where it might be landing

or the waves it leaves behind.

 

At the slip of a knife

or the pop of a pill,

they seem harmless now,

but your words,

they.

Can.

Kill.
