Pointed finger
rabid accusations
stale illusions
calculated words
cutting
like drama honed steel

pointless to defend against
an imaginary wrong

sitting back then
in better late than never wisdom

I let you have
the last word

I have to agree with Marge. This is really concise, well written, and straight to the point.

Pointed finger

Doesn't this express the late conditions just too well?

A wise well-done piece.....

Thank you

Sometimes is better to let them have the last word, for the sake of love. Great poem.

I always get the last word....most of the time it is "yes dear"

I like your poem....in relationships always let the last word stay a thought and get in the last hug.  Of course if both people do this there will be little talk and a lot of hugs *S*

Enjoyed this very much.

Sitting back then

Love those lines. I often have that kind of wisdom.

funny how you can read a piece, and later you realized you completely missed the entire meaning in text....
