Ambush

Mostly they are welcome friends
joining me with their phrasing
insights and observations
sometimes the writing of them is a lesson
teaching me newly about myself, my world
today I was ambushed
wrote down bitter agony I pray
to never repeat
that revisited once more
drawn by an echo in another’s poem.
Poetry is truth
but some truths kill.
