Words

by SiLeNtLy ScReAmInG   Nov 25, 2014


I have been searching,
striving,
for quintessential words-
A perfect verse.

Always believing,
if I could simply capture
thought and emotion,
deep and profound-
Somehow,
they would reach you.

One word escaped me,
perpetually
refusing permanence
of ink and page-

Goodbye.

    Whoa, this piece truly blew me away, it is something so many authors can relate to, so many lovers and friends and other relationships can understand this almost perfectly. It's well penned and the word choice worked so perfectly, the flow was velvet and the voice came across so sweetly despite the sorrow or frustration of still not penning the perfect thing for someone else or maybe even for not penning anything to your own specific approval. the ending was wonderful, how you were able to say so much with such great intention and then make your way to a single common word that you think a lot and have yet to write. It's interesting and brilliant.

    Interesting poem, to be able to show someone your emotions through a poem, but unable to express the words correctly, and then come up with this poem which does exactly that.. in a very clever and unique way!
    Great ending.

    Well done.
