Ha ha, yesssss so true"to touch a word is to touch worlds"..I could not agree more.
As a child I devoured all books, even tose about silly stuff like cooking, lol. I used it to escape my life and felt like there was this place that only words can take you too, a higher level of concience and living. I truly believe reading, and in a broader sense, education, is what can lift people from ( emotional) poverty.
I love the poem, I think you made a beautiful statement, which is absolutely true.
One minor detail:
scratched out chapters,
daydreams spawned of idle minds...
worlds beyond words...
those remain, uncaptured,
pulling at the line like caught fish
turning free and restricted
around the trapped syntax.
I removed almost every "the", compare this to the original and tell me what you think? :)
This is a very powerful piece..which deserves to be noticed a lot more than this..
ur wording was really gd...i found nothing to even pick up!..the words u chose was 100 % suitable..the title was catchy and in a way and another new on stage..
gd vocabs, not really big yet strong.
this is added to my favs.
