The Words - Poem by Autumn Winds

I am the words of the lost
And broken
The words that ring with truth
Even as they hurt to hear
I am the words of a song
Now forgotten
That silence plays; you cannot hear
I am the words of a heart once broken
And of the pain it took to mend
I am the words of the young
Of the old
The words that they dare speak
I am the words the world speaks
And the cries the clouds utter
I am the words of a thundering clap
The words the haunted have long kept
I am the words of a beautiful blade
Buried under the sand
I am the words of a deep dark sea
So deep we cannot reach
I am the words of a trust now broken
It lays shattered, cutting those who go near
I am the words the rain says as it falls from the sky
The words of girl much like I
I am the words of the lost
And broken
The words that ring with truth
Even as they hurt to hear
