Out of Nothing

With a word
The universe was flung into space
With a word
Everything came to be
Ex nihilo
OUT OF NOTHING

The Word brought life….
LIFE
And yet
You toss them around 
As though they were…..nothing
Not grasping the creative power
Hidden in every letter
Every syllable
Explosive potency
The ability
To bring life
OUT OF NOTHING

You play with them
Thinking them impotent
Just….words
Little do you know…
How could you possibly fathom
That the very essence of
Life, love, joy, peace, beauty, serenity, desire
All these and so much more
You bring to life in me…
Ex Nihilo
OUT OF NOTHING

With just one word
From your lips….
You create Eden in my heart
Where streams of passion flow
Where no fruit is forbidden
Where flowers flourish
Under the light of your smile
And I exist and breathe
The air of paradise
Clothed only in the light
Of your eyes…

Be careful with your words
Your words create in me…life….
Ex Nihilo
Out of nothing
Light
Out of nothing
Love
Out of nothing
Desire
Out of nothing
Passion
Out of nothing
Ecstasy
Your words create
In my innermost being
OUT OF NOTHING…..
A mighty surge of
.........LIFE..........

    So much can be created from nothing, words are the building blocks of all we create or destroy, 'Be careful with your words', umm, you know me Auntie, that's hardly likely haha. This is a fantastic write, a cautionary tale methinks. Take care, Richard

    Should it read " everything came to be" ? The poem is exceptional, words are truly moe powerful than we can imagine.

    No worries, usually your work is verging on and reaching perfection so there is nothing to correct.
