These Words

therapy1226

 

Building a thought, word by word

Hanging in the air, frozen in time

Turning the image inside out

Flowing syllables locked in rhyme

 

Tongue-tied and brain twisted

It flows naturally from your lips

My words mixed like the salad

Talk fades like a lunar eclipse

 

Graciously you translate

Millions of words, none worthwhile

Choosing carefully but silence

Nodding with a kindly smile

 

Ideas tumble from my head

Musings of assorted shades

Layers of an audio mural

As each expression cascades

 

Seeing your mouth silently making shapes

In a world of communication troubles

Words shrink the space between us

No sound just harmonious bubbles
