Words are magical.

Words are powerful

And yet cannot hurt you.

Words are confusing

But clear.

Words are a mystery

Yet they hold no secrets.

Inside words there can be war and there can be hope.

Words can destroy your life or can help you find love.

They represent us.  They display our feelings.


But words can only tell so much.

They have limits, boundaries and they are contained.

Inside you and inside me there is something that cannot be captured,

Something wild

That is your heart.

Your heart is beyond words.
