A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

funny that words should mean so much

"
Words ...
their placement 
significant,
cadence
divine, 
at times --

                         funny,
                             they should mean so much

to one
who has been
beaten,
tortured,
and raped
by fictions ...
                              time, 
                                  and again

she
rearranges letters
to suit
the occasion,
and hands them
over 

To the man
who is
short on words,
but fills her
with all the 
poetry 

she'll ever need.

This is poetry. When two become one, when two know the needs and wants of another. Words are not needed. Thank you Lyn for sharing the amazing poetry. I enjoyed this one.

I am glad and you are welcome Lyn.
each time the words gathered... she aspired more and more ...after a decade she began to call herself a writer!

It was written then
Before she began
Her solace
Her comfort
Her pen ...
My mother once told me that words mean nothing but meanings sometimes have words to describe them. But, she warned, most words were inadequate to the task. So I learned honesty, integrity, patience, kindness, love and forgiveness are only words. But the meanings they represent go far beyond the brevity of nouns, adjectives and verbs. My love of poetry comes from my mother and my understanding that words are neither good nor bad but expressions of intentions, feelings or thoughts. She encouraged me to express beauty in my words but more importantly to subject my heart and spirit to beauty as often as I could. I enjoyed the read.

"Talk in everlasting words
And dedicate them all to me"

Now maybe the BeeGees were onto something. Words can be used to sooth...seduce...or terrorize.
As we know the power of words can change everything, whether true or not, all that is needed to be deceived is to believe...words. As your poem demonstrates rather well.

A good write Lyn.
