"In truth I am but a wordsmith surrendering my words to you....Kristy Tallman"™


I sit here numb -
numb from the pain -
too tired to fight about it anymore -
too hurt to feel the sting -

my pen lay there on the nightstand
wondering why I hadn't picked it up -
it knew too well my heart
was filled with words - words
I didn't have a way to set free.

The paper's edges danced
in the fan's wind -
a breeze from the window uplifted
the white sheets -
they flew through the air,
finding their way to me -
I shooed the pages away -
tears fell because my words were gone -
no - not gone just hiding

too afraid - to afraid to feel the pain -
to numb to flinch from the sting -
I sat there, paper flying everywhere
wondering what word
would make everything okay -
I cried because my words went away -

too tired to fight about it anymore -
too sad to complain -
I picked up a knife
and in the wood I carved one single word -
one word that cut so deep -
one word that explained it all -

Life –
