Words

Once upon a time

we stumbled on words

 

Creation, mutation,

incomplete, never ending

 

They trip off your tongue

get caught in your throat

 

Lost in your memory

then, rekindled again.

 

Words full of colour

and monochrome, too

 

Words fill your belly

and empty your heart

 

Words knock you dead

make you feel alive

 

Raise you to the stars

and back down to earth

 

Words to a song

make your spirit soar

 

Words can be holy

and blasphemy, too

 

Words can be clear

but also misunderstood

 

A poem’s phrase

makes you feel so raw

 

The sight of words

The sound of words

 

The wisdom of words

The naivety of words

 

The never ending story of words
