At times I think I should write
of those who gossipped and lied
and spread their rumors
with poison-tipped tongues
like arrows
aimed straight for the heart
But, I won't give them
the satisfaction
of someday reading these words
and thinking I cared

Can't help grinning at this one, Mary. I guess we've all had the experience, and I think you have the right idea. ML

This could indeed be the solution as nothing hurts more then to be ignored and if they never get a reply you'd be suprised at how easily they give up,well done mary~Graham.
