The Sweetness Of Words

I write because it is a cathartic process for me. For whatever reason, this process took on the form of poetry today. I’ve decided to share this poem as I’m still experimenting with the type content I should put out on this blog. I couldn’t think of a title that was clever and the original title of, “I like words” felt like a cliche. Either way, let me know what you guys think!

I like words.

candid, creative, insightful Words.

Words wait for the hour,

laugh at fleeting moments, 

hold steadfast to that final second,

to deliver a kiss to my soul.

Words are perfect, peaceful, purposed instants

that ambush hearers,

bringing bliss for the ears,

ecstasy for the eyes,

Purpose for my mind. 

Some words are cheap,

Yet others, with enough wealth to make us weep.

I learned the power of words and my fate was never the same. 

I was like a snowflake caught in the hurricane.

A word from thee was like a caged bird’s flight to be free

My dear grace, I love the way that word sounds to me! 

Ah yes, the sweetness of words.
