The Written Word

The Written Word
The written word can bare the soul,

Like poison ink on lace,
Give glory to that final goal,

Trace tears upon one’s face.
The written word can touch the heart,

Like darts, or passion’s flame,
Bring meaning to a new day’s start,

Find solace out of shame.
The written word can change the mind,

Like sorrow turned to smiles,

Can tell a tale of things unkind,

Send love across the miles.
The written word can capture time,

Like memories under glass,
Bring reason to a simple rhyme,

Lead thoughts to form a mass.
These written words were meant for you,

Like those I’ve penned before,
They tell a tale of moments true,

Yet promise so much more.

Now take the words I’ve written here,

And those I know you’ve read…
Believe in them and hold them dear,

My heart is where they’ve led.

  1. This is so true , the written word is powerful . Thanks for sharing I love the line like poison ink on lace and the trace tears on face how’d you think of this ? Was it from a personal experience?

  2. Yes, yes, yes… I agree. Written words can shake the entire earth beginning with the mind, body and soul. The power of words cannot even be described. Words have changed my inner and outer world and continue to do so.

  3. I love this one!!! I really like writings that are about writings… Love for words and literature. Realisation of how powerful words are, to the point they can be easily misunderstood.
