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

spanish,Portuguese 

or some gibberish my five year old brother made up

 

Do they hold meaning

to me?

to others?

 

can I say them out loud

no?

are they really words then?

 

or are they just thoughts

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

welsh

english

english

english

 

are these words?

are they? 

Do they show you, me?

 

no one word gives you me

except one word

me

 

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

meaning

no words carry 

no words

words 

every one means something

to you

but

not to the world

you

you are your world

make the words mean something

 

to you
