Blurb They say; a word is just a word, but I think writers know better. To a writer letters and words are a gift given to us, so that we can make sense of the senseless. With them we are able to create great stories; stories of love, hate, desire, fear, life and of so much more. If a word is just a word, how come they are so important to us? How come they do hurt us? How come they do sooth us? How come they do make somewhat of a difference? With the following collection of poems I hope that you too, dear reader will question the saying; a word is just a word, for it is not just a word is it?

1. All I Have

I look at you,

But my glance has no meaning,

For all I have is words.

 

I smile at you,

But my grin speaks no truth,

For all I have is words.

 

I reach for you,

But my touch has no relief,

For all I have is words.

 

I love you,

But my affection shows no passion,

For all I have is words.

 

I don’t know how to see you.

I don’t know how to please you.

I don’t know how to touch you.

I don’t know how to love you.

Forgive me for all I have is words.
