The words are scrambled
Inside the walls crumbling
The words are muffled
Within the mind sleeping
The words are quiet
Inside the thoughts weeping
The words are loud
Within realities keeping
The words are silent
Inside the body steeping

Spilled on a canvas of white
Not always sounding right
The words appear
But do they hear
The words within
As they spin and spin
Clinging to the visions
Of thoughts divisions

    I have felt like this the past two years. I couldn't write a thing... I was stagnant, couldn't put a verse together. The words were all around, of course... but I couldn't get them to make sense. So glad I found my voice again. What a fantastic piece you have written here, no matter if you meant it the way I interpreted it or not.

    Thoughts divisions leave our minds to wonder what is there to find. A moment that gets left behind in all these human ties that bind. Just what we'd know if we could see inside these walls. Would we be free? Here's hoping you hear the peace inside your soul Debra. :)
