Sensitive to Words

From the rubble of broken
Cinders and ash surround
Hope crushed and buried
Self-belief suffocated of air
The edges of everything charred
Burnt by the fire of your tongue
Meant to build
But taken all wrong
Stewed and nearly drowned
In your guiding sentences
Sensitivities have gleaned lessons
Of improvement and opinion
Grown by near devastation
