Handle with care
It said
On the side of that box
Tend caution
It said
Printed onto that sticker
Fragile
It said
Labels on the glass
This side up
It said
Just underneath the arrows
Pointing to the sky

Breakable
It said
Only after I had been broken

Likely to burst

You can be around a person forever,
and still, you'll never know
their true character.

Seen this countless times.

Words from our mouths can be swords
from a sheathe.
An arrow on a bow.
A stone from a sling.

Again, people I know lack a damn filter...and they have the nerve to stupidly wonder why they have so many issues -.-

Smiles from people around
you aren't always
genuine.

The mask falls off eventually.

Blood is thicker than water. Be
wary, their knowledge of
you are their own
set of knives...

Be careful.

..her lips
so smooth and with
every word
she commanded
for more..so sweet I couldn't think
of something else
perhaps more bitter..
face with impurities and
a faintly rough yet
soothing and graceful
aftertaste.
When we went to that camping trip in California one time,
I saw her...raw.
Walking around in the darkness  
warm wind swiftly blowing her hair in the distance
with nothing but a long lumberjack shirt
with only one button buttoned.
Only seen with the fire pit still glowing being fed from earlier.

when we shared glances across the pit
I knew I fell in love
and I couldn't get enough.

Feel good in your skin
Ready to take on the world
Don't let it eat you

While silence is golden,
our speech is silver
Use at the appropriate time
because they are killer

From a silvern tongue
to glittering silence
Both can be peaceful
as well as defiant

A tongue needs no bones
Mine is lemon and honey
Prickly by nature

I have what you don't
A balanced filter for two
For sour and sweet

A tongue needs no bones
To cut in and wound someone
So, wield your sword well

Based on an incident that happened today. There is a time and a place to say things but some things should not be said, let alone thought.

Be sure of one thing
Use that tongue and taste your words
Before you loose it

Easier said than done sometimes and not everyone has a filter. This is dedicated to people I once knew...
