A-Z: Unspoken

Things said and unsaid,
both raw and painful.
Scars ran deep,
wounds beneath
never able to heal.
Things could never
be undone;
compromise and tolerance
worn far too thin.
Defeat was now
too heavy to bear,
even together.
Walking away,
time and silence
swallowed their leftover
unspoken words.

~McGuffy Ann Morris

This poem can speak of various kinds of relationships. In fact, for me, it does.

    • Darla, as a poet, I try to write for others, too. I speak for those who may not have a voice, for whatever reason. Knowing you are not alone can help, too. Too often, many hold in pain, for various reasons. But, that is a dangerous thing. There is a risk of implosion. So, it really is not about Me, but about healing. What doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger. I survived in spite of others. Hugs.


  1. Very powerful. Because of what my parents couldn’t do growing up – I’m sure the people I care about know it. 90% of the time, the person is speechless or feels weird because they aren’t used to hearing it. That part always makes me sad – that people don’t know how they affect those around them for the better. I also know that unspoken words create cracks in the relationship that later becomes an ocean.
