Words Are My Tools

9 Jun

                                        Words Are My Tools

Words are my tools and I give

Form to feelings and to thoughts;

Make sense of abstract worlds

By sequencing selected words.

I string them onto sentence twine

Like chosen, polished jewels

Arrayed and ordered one by one

Reflecting truths, and hopes, and dreams.

Reflecting fears and lies.

I draw out hidden beauty,

Reveal the secret pain;

Sometimes I even touch the place

That celebrates this life

With flickers from the jewel lights

Dancing brightly to and fro.

And still I fail to find the words

That say how dear you are to me:

For this a total dearth.
