What I Want My Words To Do To You
I want my words to break your heart and mend it at the same time,
Pierce the parts of your soul you never knew existed,
Heal old wounds,
Erase present ones.
I want my words to show where I am
Where I have been
And where I am going.
I want my words to identify that I’m more than what meets the eye,
Expose my vulnerabilities,
Reveal my strengths.
I want my words to paint a picture,
A Monet or Picasso in written form.
I want my words to change the world,
Make it kinder,
Dissolve the hostility,
Break through the bitterness.
I want my words to always be true,
From the heart
And many as the sands of the beach.
I want my words to matter long after my pen lifts off the page,
My book is shut
And we are no longer together.
