Stop Talking


(Girl in Grey, Louis le Brocquy, 1939)

Stop Talking

Why do you talk to me harshly

hostility and anger in every word

no control on  your agitation

my faults and failures

thrown at me

to belittle


no thought

to my care

or that it hurts

to be treated so unkindly

your words striking like metal daggers

bludgeoning my already war-torn soul of love
