Conversations can often go awry,
Common ground crumbling underfoot,
If harmony is a creature,
A living thing,
Misunderstandings are a stake to the heart,
A fact or thought misconstrued,
Is the death of agreement after all,
A glitch,
A wound,
Emotions can be tarred,
Until logic is applied again,
Misinterpretation isn’t malice,
No harm is meant,
But misunderstandings happen.

  1. Yes, well oenned.
    Love your well placed lines…
    “If harmony is a creature
    A living thing..
    Then misunderstandings are a stake to the heart.”
    You have captured the emotions that accompany this event, beautifully.

    This really resonates with me. Eventually I plan to write a post of my own on my blog, but am still mulling it over. Very much has to do with my feelings about my workplace, so I have to be cautious in what I saw publicly. I think the public is upset enough about the state of healthcare here in the states. Due to various things, I am retiring in September. Then hopefully can concentrate on saying what I want to say without immediate retribution, if you know what I mean. (And yes my employer has IT trolls who watch…)

      I can totally understand that. You’ve got to be careful these. The concept of an employer having IT watch-trolls is absurd and immoral honestly. I don’t blame myself you for moving on from that job.
