Not Just Words, Anymore

Poetry By: RubyRose81196

Just something I thought about when I was writing...

They're only words

They have no meaning

They say nothing important

They are empty and soulless

They tell no story

They say nothing about the person

They are useless

They are not needed

The most crucial thing lies forgotten

Gathering dust behind stacks of books

It's own fault

Until you clear out the shelf.

You realise how empty your words are

You know that there is nothing as strong

as this type of language

Nothing can undermine these kind of words.

Nothing can overpower.

Writing needs soul

Words need heart

Language needs love

Notes need body

Messages need lungs

Scribbles need Being

The brain is unimportant

We would do better without them.

They get in the way of important feelings

Even tiny ones.

Making every emotion a toss up between

the Pros and Cons

Processing every piece of advice

Before we know what we really think of it.

Half the time we don't know What is What.

What is Brain and what is Heart.

What is Love and What is Logic.

What is Confusion and what is Certain.
