Words as Weapons,  Rev 2

Words can be soft
like a rose petal
Or can stick in your throat
like thorns, piercing and
grasping your tongue.

A single word can
heal a broken heart,
Or rip it into pieces much
like a sharp blade.

Some words get stuck
on the tip of the tongue
without making a sound.
Those are the ones that
hurt the most.

Think twice before using
your Words as Weapons
Bite your tongue even if
you should make it bleed.

Words hurts the same
or more than punches
Those will heal over time
hurtful words remain forever
in the mind and heart.

Crimson Faith

Losing my faith
In all of humanity
Shedding of blood
Showing of hatred
between races
Creating barriers
instead of bonds
for a better world
Things are valued
People devalued 
Our blood is all
crimson in color
Of many shades
our beautiful skin
We need to spread
seeds of kindness
And not more of hate.

Shake the Ashes

I want to touch you
Not with my hands
But with my words
Soft, enter your mind
Leave indelible prints
there upon your heart
a gifted rose while
Shaking the ashes,
Erasing the time,
Healing the wounds
of a former loveless life,
wipe the slate clean and
make love to your thoughts.
Write you my best poem,
leave it tattooed upon your
heart with permanent ink.
Bare your soul completely,
Unleash passionate desires
Making you feel every letter;
sparks ignited upon your skin.

~Blanca Alicia Garza
