words

They break apart like these letters

that won’t hold any truth to fit the mold

any truth that stems from soul.

And words they keep us laughing

at the elephant in the room

like a big party balloon that is

floating in the way.

And words they show us branches

from the paths that we were on like

a note from the same song that leads

you into the wrong

and words they shift and shiver like

they  aren’t used to the cold

disappear in a second

never stay to become old.

What happened to forever in the

things we say and do? when

each thread was stitched forever

and our tapestry was true

what happened to the kindness and

the people so aware? like my brother who

would notice and who never failed to share

all his love and acceptance and a smile

from sip to soul? it’s a flatsheet of squareworld now

and it feels so alone.
