there is many a slip
between the heart and the lip....
we want to say something, but feel it not right
so as not to offend others and bring them in a dim light
but we have no control about what is in heart
since the truth emits like dart
later we make excuses by way of saying

hold it dear, don't take the wrong meaning
that was not what my heart did hold
there was an error in the way it is told.


  1. A slip of the tongue or a typo does not signify much between two persons who know and trust each other well.This may be true with acquaintances or strangers.
    A very nice thought that one should remember ensuring the tongue and the heart work always in unison.
    Ullonru vaitthu puram onru pesuvaar uravu kalavaamai vendum is what comes up in my mind.

  2. That was well SAID!!
    words cut deeper than swords
    your poem says it beautifully!

  3. There are times when what we say is misinterpreted. That is worse than the 'slip' - in that you feel let down that the person who knows you so well, did not understand what you were trying to say!
