- Books, Literature, and Writing
Words and I
I fiercely fell in love with words,
Many years ago.
Words and I had solid chemistry,
From very early on.
They enchanted and alarmed me.
They were enthralling and engaging.
There was a natural magnetic bond,
That I was rapidly creating.
I could alter, morph, and change them.
I could make them have new meanings.
I had this remarkable ability,
To influence intense new feelings.
But as I got to know them,
I seen a more sinister side.
They could be agonizingly malicious,
When savagely utilized.
I was ignorant of the price,
That you have to pay,
When used for wrath and vengeance,
Or in a terribly hazardous way.
Now I apply them carefully,
Keeping my debts in mind,
I still have love and fascination,
Just a much more guarded kind.
