Running With Knives In Your Mouth Posted by Vampire Weather on January 15, 2012 Perhaps it isn’t safe To run your mouth With such sharp words inside It seems to me that someone might get hurt Perhaps this is the way You seek to keep Your ego satisfied But am not inclined to dish the dirt AdvertisementShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to email a link to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)MoreClick to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

This is so cleverly written, VW! Words so true to life and such a powerful message conveyed! Thank you, for yet, another great write!
Thank you for the encouragement!
No never dish the dirt, for if you do it will cause hurt.
I love that poem VW just so succinct . It is as pointed as the words and the knives and makes your position perfectly clear!
Thanks Willow! Ah, the power of words…
Oh, wow, did you ever capture small-town Southern USA silver-haired ladies “gah-den cluhb” meetings!
hehe, I suppose if the shoe fits, any of us can wear it 🙂
I love this one!!! So well said and so very true 🙂 Wow!!!!!
Thank you, Autumn!
Strong piece and a very interesting topic! My tongue tend to act like a knife sometimes so I could really relate. Hmm, guess I should re-read this piece when I get agitated and wants to set free my tongue! Thanks for sharing
Always keep the tips pointed to the ground when moving forward 🙂
Look at you
Pretty face turned askew
By sharp metal spilling out
An overworked trash spout
Of course they never see you
So sweet and clever
To all the right people
Someday I will sever
That flow shooting out
We will all make you pay
For the thoughtless evils you say
I relate to your words so well, a person like that was half the reason I changed schools this year.
It is a shame how carelessly we often wield our words. Thank you, Andrea
Wow! So gripping from the title on…
Thank you, my friend!
You certainly know how to say a mouthful in just a few words…Very powerful!…Very true!
Thank you for sharing VW.
Hugs, Deb xx
Thank you, Deb! It was originally longer, but editing is God’s gift to art 🙂
great penned, it so true, sharp word really can hurt. Thanks for sharing .:) I like it! 🙂
Thank you for visiting! I’m glad you stopped by
Sharpened by the words of intent…
I like this one Vampire Weather, it
is rather short but straight to the
point as it were 🙂 😉
Have a wonderful Tuesday 🙂
Thank you, my friend. I am always glad to see you in my domain
Good title for this excellent, short poem.
(I’ve known people like this – with sharp, gossipy tongues. Luckily that was in the distant past….)
Most of us have probably been this person at one time or another 🙂
I love the pieces, amazingly written as always and this is sooo true…
Thank you, willofheart. I appreciate the encouragement!
Certainly, we gotta curb that two-edged sword! A very sound advice here bro. Peace ~
Thank you ma’am
Awesome. Short and sweet. I think 2011 was the year of a demon’s tongue lashings on me. Some just insist on forcing that ego and pride into the open, don’t they?
Ah, the tongue is such a powerful thing. When it is drawn it begs a conflict, and often when one weapon is drawn another is produced to assail it, but the bloodshed from words is deep inside, and much harder to mend, is it not? Thank you for stopping by, Scott
Yes, and I imagine all are either guilty at some point for either starting or joining in a battle that had a better option available. If only the regret could be foreseen…
Always loving your work VW. I have to catch up on reading here I see.
Thank you sir! Stay as long as you like 🙂
Brilliant work VW! And what a vivid title, I love it. 😀
You are too kind, Eve. Thank you!
Powerful message–sharply, by necessity, delivered.
