Some words just want to be told
I let them fall as they arise
How could a sentence write itself without me thinking it into being?
Can you bypass the mind
Like a city that takes too much time to navigate, so we simply go around it
Avoiding all those tiresome traffic lights, side streets and congestion
But can it write itself
Falling just so
Without any sort of attention to detail?
Because words come not from the mind but outside of it
They alight like sparks to illuminate a thought
This tile is cold beneath my palm
And the words arrive to tell me what I already knew
Sometimes I wonder what the point of them is in that case
But then I look at you, needing to tell me
And me needing to hear
And the words have gone missing
And I’m deaf in my ears
Silence has shattered us
The words have disappeared ￼
To be clear
*Communication is so very important. Ambiguity leads to assumptions, and assumptions left to run can be ruinous to relationships. That said, good communication takes time and energy – leave the expense for what/who counts.
