Misunderstandings can be fatal

13 Nov

Communications unclear

sent in a single word or

a series of letters we are

supposed to understand

Sometimes words exchanged

across distances with no faces

no voices no touch no breath upon the cheek

can make for a vast sea of unhappiness

which grows rancid from neglect

Misunderstandings can be frustrating

and try the patience sure

tripping each other up until

the resentment builds

leading to a disconnection

many battles can follow

leaving all of us in ruins

Misunderstandings conveyed by words

upon a screen without

a moment of love or

respect or consideration

can cause great harm

Misunderstandings

can be

fatal
