Words (poem)

Updated on January 31, 2015

He bared the words which set her heart to flight

Each passage was another dream come true

Enchantment was the picture which he drew

And wonder were the feelings he’d ignite


He spoke of heavens he would bear her to

Each wished for whisper sparked her soul’s delight

Each promise from his lips her whims excite

And then he freed the words of I love you


They spent their days with words of wonderment

The world she knew seemed very far away

She found her meaning in his verse there sent

Forever were the words she heard him say


And then one dawn such pain would she incur

For in the end mere words were all they were

      Words are s0 powerful. Some use them so meaninglessly. Good thoughts on this one.

      That was beautiful. So touching. She must have been a poet at heart to put such faith in words.

      Martin, your list of literary genres know no bounds.

      You are a master of the art of writing.

      Your understanding of the dynamics of a relationship is uncanny.

      I tip my hat to you, M. Hatter, sir.

      Those words should never be spoken without the heart to back them up!

      Beautiful poem. We have all been there - hearing the beautiful words and then learning the words were just that -words with no feeling or commitment behind them. You certainly can capture emotions beautifully in your poetry and the accompanying photos are so wonderful also. I really enjoyed reading this one!

      'For in the end mere words were all they were,' great line. I thought I was reading a love story till reality bite at the end. Nicely done.
