Punches of kind
 the physical ones
 and the verbal assaults
cause excruciating pain.
The bodily scratches
 can be slight and unnoticeable
in physical assault.
 They disappear with time
and fade from memory.
Those that are deadly
causes a maim-
 a permanent disability
or turn fatal. A situation
where memory has no role.
The verbal  punches
 can be a tease
 with a derisive intonation
 or a venomous outpour.
The dimensions
 are impregnating.
 Callous and heinous
 they sound. The spit and spat
 kill the spirit.
An outburst:
 where emotions
play the card.
