Words, A Love Story

Thank you to Stacey, Betsy, Dana, Tara, Beth, Anna, Kathleen & Deb for this amazing platform to write and share writing! What a wonderful community you've created! I'm honored to be part of it. Join us at Two Writing Teachers.

Words
They are my food
nourishing me
bringing me life...
Every.
Single.
Day.

What would I do
without my Words?
How would I...
live?
communicate?
love?

My mother
introduced me to
my true love...
Words.

We first met in
books
and continued
our romance in 
notebooks.

Words
always know
how I feel
how to soothe me
how to make me laugh.

Words
comfort me
show me the truth
make me better
love me for who I am.

I love you, Words.

  4. Sometimes I find that a word I want to use escapes my memory. I think it is just a symptom of menopause. I hope it is just menopause! It frightens me to think that I could be without words. What would I do?

  10. Love what you did with your poem and how it is written. I also love the star at the end full of words! It's the perfect way to put everything together. :) My mom shared the love of words to me through books when I was little as well. I still remember going to the library with her so often and feeling like it was the largest place on earth!
