Behind Each Word

Behind Each Word

A Poem by Marina

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but what is a single word worth? A world.



Behind each word there’s a world

A hundred more stories to tell

To grow, to flower and blossom

To put you under their spell.


Behind each word is a land

A thousand more tales to unfold

To take you to places far away

To show you wonders untold


Behind this poem is a realm

Millions of lives that have been

Sights unique to that place alone

Sights no mortal has seen


Behind each line is a universe

Filled with silver and gold

Never seen by the likes of you

Holding the secrets of old


Behind that cover is a place

Foreign to your eyes

Open and see, close and remember

That glimpse of remote worlds:  a prize

True fact! we always observe a unique disclosure of a different realm we explore heartedly and with curiosity.Your poem is as lovely as the idea mentioned.your fluidity with language is worth admiring, your play with words is pleasing in poetic sense....keep writing.....

I love the idea of (i'm pretty sure) every person has a story and you shouldn't judge them be why they do. That's what I'm getting out of this. This is a whaleiful poem and I look forward to reading more of your work.
