First Line: Before I knew how cruel
Last Line: For fear they will not sing.
Subject(s): Gossip


Before I knew how cruel
Just common talk can be,
I thought that words were singing things
With colors like the sea.

But since I've felt their caustic lash
And know how they can sting,
I hold my breath when words go by
For fear they will not sing.
