Words Can't Do It All

by Meme   Sep 24, 2012


Words can lead a strayer
back home, but they cant
fill the missing void buried
underneath ones' flesh. It
takes much more than that ..

--

Then a path chained your
world and mine. I thought
you'd stray away at one
point in time, but instead
we both found a new form
of addiction down that road,
to be attached mind and soul
to each other.

I tried to reassemble the beats
of your heart, while you filled the
missing parts of mine. Although
we never met, never felt how it's
like to be in the presence of one
another you still knew every little
thing that made me "me" and I felt
I got you all.

--

But then again words cant do it all.

--

I thought you only wanted
to be loved, to feel safe, and
feel needed. But little did I know
Oh how little did I know!
It wasn't until in my arms
when I held you for the first
time; I realized that all you
wanted is simply to breathe.

    Okay there is so much to be said about this poem, but again, words can't do it all, right? ;)

    I want to comment on many things but I just can't find the words to say them. It's like anything about words and silence leaves me speechless, because silence and words are always fighting to get to you, and you, being the battlefield, end up jaded.

    I love your opening stanza, I could read this poem over and over again just to get to the opening stanza in and out.

    Your poem felt so warm to me, I think I've written or read something similar, I'm not sure. But issues like these never get old, because everyone's got their own struggle with words. I guess we writers breathe writing yet words in most cases choke us.

    Lovely write sweet =)
    Shine on~
