I had a perfect retort,

But I chose

The less traveled road;

Held it all back

And swallowed it whole.

I have a nasty heartburn

Ever since then,

And sharp words

Keep coming back

To injure my throat!

  1. I’ve felt that indigestion too many times. Or, I’ll think of the perfect rejoinder too late, after the discussion has ended. Sometimes I suppose it’s best to just say what we mean when we have the opportunity, and if it will help us in the long run. As an introvert, I keep everything inside anyway, and it’s not a good practice to do so. Brilliant writing as always, Aaysid. πŸ™‚

    1. I can understand. It is funny how some of us keep things inside while others don’t do that, but we are the ones who end up getting hurt in both the cases. Thank you for the wise comment, Mike. 😊
