Words: The Good and Bad

Words speak
in whispers or
in shouts.
They are garrulous
and loud
and expansive–
they are quiet
and deadly
and daring.
Words tangle
our threads of reality
with imagined fantasies
of what we think
we should be.
We use words
to build walls
between our past
and our now,
and words can crumble
those boundaries
by the right voice
calling our name.
They are danger
and beauty
all wrapped into letters
that talk in screams
and whisper in silence.
Watch them hurt and
listen to them heal.
