Words are what

I live by

 

Words will

Make me smile –

 

Words embrace me

Lovingly

 

They’ll make me

Walk that extra mile.

 

Words told me to

Love you

 

It was words that

Broke my heart

 

Words told me to

Fear you –

 

To begin again –

A brand new start

 

Definitive, they flow

By the river

And the stream

 

They build the bridge –

I walk across

They build the bridge –

I see

 

Crazy, brave

They make my

World –

 

They break it

Just as quickly

 

They establish logic,

Common-sense,

And rationality

 

They create emotions,

Headstrong thoughts,

And sentimentality

 

Words are what

I live by

 

Words are my

Desire

 

Hold my hand

Tellingly –

 

Walk with me –

Above, beyond the mire.
