The words we say, and the words we never get to.

Words, words , words

i hear them in my mind 

and in my memory


none of them make sense

are they english


or some gibberish my five year old brother made up


Do they hold meaning

to me?

to others?


can I say them out loud


are they really words then?


or are they just thoughts


thoughts thoughts


i think my mind is made

of little butterflies

dfluttering their wings

to make up a thought


do my thoughts hold meaning

or are they understood?

do you know what I'm saying?

or thinking?


pig latin






are these words?

are they? 

Do they show you, me?


no one word gives you me

except one word



words words words

make up sentences

make up dreams

make up life


life life life

mine doesn't matter

nor do my words

one in seven billion


my words are lost

is a world so large 

you don't matter either

no one does


not me 

not you

not the president


None of our words mean 

the difference between life

and make believe


Did you ever say what you felt

and no one listened

that's life


No words carry


no words carry 

no words


every one means something

to you


not to the world


you are your world

make the words mean something


to you
