-x- Words -x-

How do we write, when words swollowed from sight 

Thundering sky’s, steel words into the night 

Reems of our truths, desperate to unfold 

Somehow lost on the journey, to be told 

The power of words, pull us to be heard 

Not just black or white lines, we see the blurred 

Words alleviate suppressed emotion

If they vanish, hearts are left unspoken
