Word forms

I write because
I can’t not
It froths and forms inside
Descending from massive multitudes
gives birth to subjectivity
that speaks in many tongues

Drink of these words
digesting all your own
Do they fill you up
in ways you couldn’t say,
sample tastes you
didn’t know?
Do they sicken you with
raw truths, painful bitterness
saccharine nonsense zen?

I have cut them from myself
but they are part of you
Rising from silent solitude
to scream a universal tune

  1. I love this piece! I think writers have a sort of addiction to words and language. It’s usually pretty wonderful…unless it gets you up at three in the morning because you’ve just thought of a ‘perfect’ phrase and you HAVE to write it down. I think you captured that feeling here. Thanks for sharing!


  2. It sounds very painful like you’re trying to get the attention of someone who will not show their feelings, and when you force them to portray their true selves, they run away. I really enjoyed this. šŸ™‚
