Only Words


Only Words

People say they are only words, nothing more, Author, Poet
Yet, you capture my heart and transport my mind
With those verbs and nouns you spew so freely
Your adjectives painting the grandiose or sublime

To love-drenched beaches and torture-dungeons alike
I readily go with you without fear, stranger
You lift my spirit one day and drown my soul the next
Fill me with hope and force me to shiver in danger

But most of all you reveal and define parts of me
Illuminate what I value and hate about myself
Expose my suppressed needs and fears, excite my deepest desires
And so, I reach out again to pull "us" from my virtual bookshelf

and delight in your talent with only words.
