  • Words can misfire, be misplaced or misused
    Words can slice through a heart with love
    Words can shrivel a hope,
    Words can laugh, words can cry,
    Words can dance, words can sing,
    Words can destroy everything you are or ever will be
    Words can fill an empty life with visions of another
    Words can build walls or break them down
    Words can pin your head to the pillow
    Words can lift your eyes to the heavens
    Words are beautiful and words are dangerous
    Words are from you and words are from me.
