Open Wounds


Do not use your words as knives.
There are too many people with open wounds,
Self inflicted lacerations,
Bleeding freely.

Use your words as warm embraces.
Make your words the hand they never got to hold,
The closure they never got to feel,
The sweet, sincere whispers they never got to hear.
