We Know

 

Words have a lot of uses,

really an amazing amount

descriptions and actions

…motives movement watch me

from here to there to tell you

everything I know to describe

…but…words sometimes

fail, fall on deaf ears, mean

nothing, mean different things

are just plain mean…and then

are useless…

 

A kiss that can’t be anything but goodbye

Looks that could kill

Eyes telling a story ears cannot hear

A palm stroking skin asking for love

 

We spend our lives inside

words inside meanings when

all of everything is around

us, silent and open, waiting

for our perception to get past

describing assigning labeling

and making nice little boxes

that it will fit inside…that

lines up exactly with what

we expect…

 

Words fall all around us we

see feel them every day all

the time we cannot escape

words, cannot live without

knowing having being our

words when…

in our heads souls hearts

under the thin of our skin

words don’t exist…

 

A kiss that can’t be anything but goodbye

Looks that could kill

Eyes telling a story ears cannot hear

A palm stroking skin asking for love

and

it is goodbye

it is death

it isn’t heard

and

it is love…

without words.
