funny things words could be.
i could arrange them differently
make them seem intriguing, interesting
or i could use them to make you feel
feel the fleeting, golden sunlight pass it’s way over your skin
can you see the sun beginning to drop?
I could make it rise
until it’s high in the sky
until we never see it drop again
and never see that silvery moon emerge from such darkness
I could make you feel in a different way
feelings that pull at heart strings
all your strings
I could cut them one by one.
Or maybe trigger them
is that a smile plastered across you face?
or are your walls just breaking down?
Well, stop that at once
let me use a few words
words to make you feel less conscious of those cracks
after all, I guess we all have cracks.
How about a trip to Saturn’s rings?
Or my words could always take you back to a memory
days at the seaside
the washing of azure waves
their arms pulling you underneath
or maybe i’ll just leave you with your words
for what good are mine?
