Some words let you in.
Some words shut you out.
Others build an icy wall between,
frozen block upon frozen block -
not unkind, simply formidable -
to dismiss the connection.
Ah, but no words –
therein lies the dagger!

very good, watch out for the quiet ones. Why does the man with the beat up face look intimidating when it should be the one who gave it to him!!.
Words are the same in comparison!!.
Thought provoking poem...I believe words are merely pointers to the truth. Thanks for sharing my friend! teddybear

Very interesting!
Absolutely loved it, it is so true, you have given us some solace not to take every word to as not to dismiss the connection...
Its not only the words, but the context.
cool angel thumbs up
very nice. I'm sure that you are right, but mine sure do get me in hot water.
Hi, agoodguy2have, paloma66, trurorob, Jazzy, solong, Earlgreytea, boyshchrm6, and hedistuff,
Thank you for reading and taking the time to share your comments. I really appreciate hearing from you. I posted this in response to Earlgreytea's Sanibonani... post about shunning. Like Jazzy, I hope that words point to the truth. And, like boyshchrm6, I think words have meaning within context - with the context of the listener perhaps being paramount. After all, that's what communication is. To hedistuff, there is nothing wrong with hot water! And, back to Earlgreytea, in the end it's the connections that matter. Thank you all for that!
hug very nice
