Words are a blessing,
That we use to express everything
But are words really enough?
Is there really a word to describe…
The longing that sweet memories cannot satisfy?The heart-flying feeling under the umbrella of a blue sky?The breaking sweet pain that holds the hand of healing?The steady chaotic rhythm of events unfurling and swirling?The melody of rising and slippery sliding hopes?The recognition of metaphysical ropes and incredible power to cope?The music of even anxiety, suspense, and naive expectation?The new life breathed into one held hostage in a moment of inspiration?The way one’s heart swells at the sounds of truth and recognition?
Oh, what can one really come to say
When there doesn’t seem to be a right way…
To describe —
longings, heart-flying feelings,
musics of states, inspiration and heart-swellings…
breaking sweet pain, chaotic steady rhythms, hope,
rising and falling melodies, and metaphysical ropes…
Are there really any words?
And God knows Best.
