    You said and I believed,
    But where are the words
    Which I've failed to contrieve.

    You said that love entwines
    Us as cornsilk on cob.
    Where now are your words,
    As my heart quivers and sobs?

    My ears strain for the sound
    Of your car in the drive.
    Where are your words now?
    When will they arrive???

    Words, words, words and mo words.

    Their are like a drug,
    Enslaving me.
    The lack of them is
    Depraving me.

    At the sound of your voice,
    I feel as if
    I have no choice.
    Nor do I search for any.

    Your eyes
    So easily charm me
    Into a position
    Where I want to be.

    Your lips weaken me as
    They glide over my sacred places.
    Whispered words in between,
    Hitting all of my bases.

    Words, words, and mo words.

    Your words are but
    Fragments of lust.
    They leave me holding
    Nothing but dust.

    God, please help me,
    For I am just a fool.
    His words are effectively,
    Being used as his tool...

    Yet,I still long for his
    Words, words, words, and mo words.

    you say so much here that does not immediately meet the naked eye. At first blush, it looks like another well scribed, subjective lament....but you go deeper...and you speak of the plight of many. Many who fall for pretty 'words'.

    One of my favorite passages:

    Your eyes
    So easily charm me
    Into a position
    Where I want to be.



    I find there is no age limit to lack of discernment.....in the areas of 'substance'...reality....and truth.

    Teach, sis

    INDESCRIBABLY......DELICIOUS

    It has been some time since I have read any of your wonderful
    scribings, oh EMPRESS of the pen....

    such a malady befalls us when we allow ourselves to be manipilated through the guise of LOVE!....

    while fantasy, whispered in oh so endearing terms
    can continue to feed our desire for quantity over quality....
    reality is a harsh measurement for content of character!

    for just as sure as all that glitters is not GOLD
    30 pieces of SILVER sold out ONE much more signicant than we!!

    Words fail to aptly describe how glad I am to be reading you again!! :toast:

    much love
    SAARONCROWELL :heart:

    Thank You

    Thank you all,

    This is one of the poems that I wished I had, back in my "younger" days when the river of common sense was only a quarter of an inch high.

    This poem is so real. Words can be so powerful and people use them to string others along for whatever reasons. There are many who are MASTERS of word play. Especially if the receiver is longing to hear those words they speak.

    When you Wright you paint a picture that creates an image that allows us to enter the recesses of your mind and feel what you feel and see what you see and, I for one do appreciate your willingness to share your thoughts.
