Armoury

by Kitty Cat Lady   Aug 26, 2017


Don't use your words as weapons
Don't spit those bullets at me
Don't break me with your  language
So ugly, hateful, unnecessary

Disarm yourself from aggression
Don't wound me with that spite
It won't help me understand you
Won't help you win this fight

Explain to me your issue
Be upset but don't be cruel
Because after all is said and done
You still want me to love you

So tell me why you hurt
But don't chip away at us
Because each time you do that
I like you slightly less

Let me keep respect for you
Let me hear you speak your mind
Let's figure out the difference
Between your opinion and mine

Words should not be combat
There's a glut of that for sure
Let's both just keep our dignity
I'm not here to keep score

Your ammunition is no good here
My defence now honed over time
So lay down your guns and speak to me
But please don't cross that line.

    I adore this! Almost wish I could use it as a disclaimer when meeting new people. If only that were acceptable ;)

    Craig, love This! How very true this is. No matter how upset you may be you still need to speak with respect, discuss not lob grenades. A lot of damage comes about when words,are spewed in anger.

      Did you love my poem or Craig's comment on my poem? Lol ... I hope it's both, and thanks .. I'm definitely guilty of lobbing a few verbal grenades in my time!

    I love this.

    The message is a pretty simple one. Discuss things and be reasonable.

    We can all be di(£s at times, especially when tempers flare. Male or female. When things ain't working you have to sort it out. If you cannot then everyone loses.

    Well voiced.

    In my own opinion, Women are not equal, they deserve way more than men.
    Still they have to go through mental or physical trauma at some point in their life.
    They tolerate it everything , sometimes as a wife, as a daughter, sometimes as a sister, and most of the women tolerate it as a mother.

    Respect for women...

      Thanks Lucifer, although I'm sure most women give as good as they get when it comes to having an argument :-)
      But yeah, you're right ... women totally rock! Lol

    I believe this to be your best rhyming poem. It flows so naturally and hides a sad message within. Well done.
