Words have the power

It was never a thought to write; I was so lost in reading that it never occurred to create my own version of reality onto paper. And then a challenge happened; like a calling of my lifetime. Lines after lines, I recreated stories and dreams in my poetry. I ranted, complained, dreamed, hoped, laughed and even shed tears – all in words and so less in real. My lovers fell for those words, their words trapping me into lies and false hopes. I waited for a storyteller to come claim me for months, while another poet took my heart in a barter of soul for my poems.
I write to forget those scars, I write to forgive my naivety, I write to experience the power words have. I write in memory of the first kiss, the first time I surrendered myself to lust, the moment of hurt and betrayals that would otherwise have lodged too deep, If not for the words pouring on this blog and healing the spirit. I write because I know nothing else to do this well. I write because I am blessed by the pen.I have the power to create , I write so I can one day reach out to the numerous souls, feeling same – some days powerless , some days powered by shared hopes.
The yellow leaves
Cover the garden, once green
Words resurrect.
