Bittersweet Words

They are spoken with ease,
Lavished onto people with each roll of fluid
Tongues as though breath
Is coated with the purest honey,
And fed into the air
Straight into unsuspecting systems.
They are cherished
Like jewels unfit for a crown
And their oxymoronic charm is savoured
As they seep into bodies,
Taking residence in the deepest depths
Of vulnerable hearts,
Where the sweetness dulls
And bitterness comes out to stay.


i like this poem because it shows the beautiful imagery of the "sweet words" but i wish you could have explore or show more the concept on why the emotions/words were bittersweet rather than tell it by just the last line. other than that, i love your choice of words and how the words rolls of the tongue when spoken. very nice.
