When words no longer work

When words no longer work wonder wish want When words won’t come compensate contrive When my voice breaks snaps sunders strains When I want to talk touch tenderly towards But you are not able about abandoned absent You are no longer listening live longing When I need to find a meaning In the shape form structure But I ‘m stranded Stuck Sucked under Swallowed Then I reach out to you I want your touch tenderness tranquillity temerity Sometimes words don’t seem enough endless empty emotive ejaculatory Yet words can console conjure quilt charm captivate cover. Stretch out your hand across the emptiness and touch me with your fingers friendship faithfulness forgiveness frailty fever touch my heart with words and I will hope expect await be grateful grave garbed in joy When words don’t feel enough When all we want is touch Or to see sigh sob sing Words can be shaped changed contorted controlled challenged Words are all we have To make us love To make us live To make us alive To make us sing To make us stand up To console,words may be# Juat Enough
