The Power of Words
Do you even understand how words work?
Because we could not communicate without them
Not only in the literal sense
But how else could I tell you
How much you hurt me
How I felt when you did what you did
Or how much I hated you for leaving me
How could I possibly describe
The needles in my heart
That stinging sensation
Of a thousand wasps
Or the large ocean blue
That enveloped my heart
And suffocated any remaining feelings
Of happiness
How else could I describe the warmth
Of a red flame that burned furiously
With a vengeance so hot
It made you shiver from anticipation
How else could I describe the calm
Of the sand in the Sahara
With a light breeze blowing it
Towards a new direction
But never steering it where it shouldn't go
How could I describe all of that
Without words?
