Hurled Words

Your words
like stormy pebbles
hurled at me
cross my other cheek
pierce my side
‘til no longer
a doubting Thomas
am I.

Darts fly.
Bleeding from
the wounds
hands, by nails
driven into flesh,
stuck in odd repose,
ask, Why?

gnj, as usual you can do in a mere 42 words what takes me many, many touch the reader and ask an important question. words hurled in anger are always dangerous, for both the word thrower and the one(s) they hit. it's nice to see you, not hurling poems, but posting. ;-)
agree with goodguy...few words, big impact. have sometimes regretted the moments of throwing syllables of daggers...sometimes. your words would cause pause, should i ever pick up a knife again. thank you, gnj, for your insight...always. bouquet

Hello Gnj4u!

Your Title, could never be anything else!.
You wove this Title and write altogether brilliantly!

Every line has power strength sadness, running through a vein of humbleness, a very very exceptional write! my dear friend, then to close, you leave in its wake of this powerful scene, a question, of "Why"


Love Sophia
