#Words Poem by maitreyee joshi

Words, words,
More words.
Words, that throng,
Congest and crowd.

Words, soft,
Mysterious whispers,
Or loud proclamations,
Never match the decibels,
Of emotion and vanish
In the stratosphere.

Words in a torrid spat,
Collide and clash,
And fall down like,
Pieces of broken glass.

Words, diplomatic,
Like torque,
Twist and turn,
And loose their reason.

Words, driven by,
Reckless, waging tongue,
Lacerate the heart.
Or words naughty,
That are not meant to be,
But still mean a lot.

But, words simple, genuine,
Straight and polite,
Start with one,
Reach, linger and then reside,
With the other.
