Handle With Care


Venomous words left hanging,
a black cloud dividing us.
Seal me away from the world
because misery is contagious.
A heart that once was wholesome
has been jaded and shattered
by a toxic affair.
Label me poisonous,
handle with care.

  1. Thank you so much. That means a lot to me!

  2. Painful!! Very painful!

  3. “My Constant Thoughts” has been included in the A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.


  4. Oh the pain after a relationship is shattered and poisoned by words and actions you can't take back. Time to heal is certainly necessary, although at some point, we need to make ourselves vulnerable again, I think. An excellent response. By the way, your link didn't work so I had to come and find you… you might want to re-link 🙂
