Salt In The Wound
Fool me once as the saying goes shame on you Fool me twice then shame on me What is this force that pulls me to you and I go willingly without resistance Defying sanity When do I stop Sprinkling salt in my own wounds?

Yes a stinger 😦
Thank you Chris ☺️
Alas… so often we do the same mistake over and over.
We are human ☺️
Oh, those last lines are so powerful. I have done that. Oh, yes.
Many of us have done that De ☺️💕
I love what you have done with this one. We do it all too often it seems!
Thank you so much Dwight. We are all guilty of it I suppose 😥
I think you are right!
I came Christine, I read, great work my friend — but I am not well. Be back soon.
Sorry to hear your status Ron. I was hoping you were on the mend ❤️🩹
Sometimes we don’t ever stop, isn’t it, Christine!
Yes, there are some things we can never accept and we end up hurting ourselves more. Thanks Punam ☺️💕
You are welcome, dear. ❤️
Oh, this can be a huge problem! How do we learn to stop doing that?
As humans I doubt we ever will 😥 Thanks Ingrid 💕

Great poem Christine. One to ponder on.
Thank you so much. Hope you are well ☺️💕
All good here in my part of the world Christine but we are really concerned about people caught up in the terrible floods in NSW and Queensland. Thankfully my family are all safe. Take care. Lynn.
Oh such horror everywhere in the world. It’s like the planet is saying ‘Stop this”. I’m happy your family is Ok Lynn. ☺️💕
Very good! Read it through a few times to absorb the truth of it.
Thanks Carol. I appreciate it ☺️
