Is there beauty in words or just beautiful words?
Is it the synergy created by verbs and nouns
As they roll eloquently over your tongue,
Through your lips, into existence?
Or is it the message, the meaning both apparent and hidden
that can make your heart dance or weep?
The seductive banter of your words can penetrate my soul,
and make me dream of the thoughts underneath them.
The censorship of what lies beneath is both frightening and arousing
As the anticipation of what may be revealed overtakes me.
Choose carefully or you may fall,
may reveal all that makes you vulnerable.
And with words you may create a void because you gave away a piece of your heart ,
Now lost through your lips, never to be returned.
Learning the beautiful, painful lessons of this life.
