Words

Words mean everything
they do everything
they say everything
they hide everything
they know everything
Words mean nothing
they don’t feel
they don’t heal
they’re not a big deal
if you don’t believe them
Words make wars
divorces
friends
Words
Without words
We would hug more
kiss more
play more
help more
or
fight more
some people need words to live
their way
and some people don’t
because they live in a way that’s easy
to understand
words are not your own
they belong to whoever
you give them to
keep the ones that mean the most to you
that don’t hurt you
give the ones that you want
someone to give
to someone else
words don’t belong to you
they belong to the air
and melt inside of nothing
because nothing can hold them
they existed before you spoke them
they existed as a heartbeat
a rhythm
a pulse of life
that could have never
been
denied
whether you spoke them or not
you don’t need words
you need to remember
to love
Your
self
