Words That Catch

Words that catch,

Like a thorn,

Try to ignore,

Place out of mind,

Good feelings turn sour fast.

No reason why,

A shift? A crash maybe?

Some words catch, even as you let go.

Like the thorn stuck in your clothes,

Try to remove, to rationalise.

To inform yourself why,


Trying to suppress the thorn,

The feeling,

The thought.

How can good feelings,
Sour so easily, like the catch of a word,
The memory formed,
The mind faulty

Then stuck with the thorn.
The words that catch
