Ingesting your words
They fall into my gut
With a thud...
With the thoughts
Of what could be
And what is...
Knowing it never will be

Your words land with the same thud...which, in poetry, is a good thing...in the real world...a feeling I'm all too familiar with...words...it's a love hate relationship of the worse kind when they hold so much power over us and we understand their strength...most don't...no matter what school yard they grew up on. How's that for an essay! Whoops! LOVED the write, lady!ReplyDelete
I love your essay because I really appreciate your opinion and comments! I agree that words are extremely powerful and so many take it for granted... or just don't understand how powerful they really are. Thanks Natasha!Delete

This is a raelly tough read. Words have so much power, either to build up or to tear down. The tragedy is that too often we only tear down and the wounds we create never truly heal.ReplyDelete
Evocative and powerful. Punchy words spoken in a soft voice.ReplyDelete
In vain is hope
if not a scope,
your love in vain
if not by gain.
