Words are risky, they sometimes get the wrong idea

OF WORDS AND IDEAS

 

My words ,like mosquitoes

sneak up on the body of an idea


 


surreptitiously suck and steal its lifeblood

to feed themselves


or buzz in threateningly -

like kamikazi pilots

all noise and no substance


knowing full well

the risk they take

of being flattened

by an avenging hand.

Yes! I know that of which you write. Words often "scare" me into not writing them for fear of being misunderstood. That's why I wait for strong inspiration before I write. Thank you for sharing this offering, Joyce. Love and peace to you. Regis
