“Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.”
Yet words cast spells and bind reality into existence
they bring us together and rub us raw against each other
as each rough edge, exposed wears down
we smooth and sooth
and then skim ourselves across the water
casting more spells in turn.
By our words we are known
and by our deeds we are told
we erect Towers with our words
then crash them upon the shore of our beings
waiting for truer ones to come…
Without words how would we ever know silence?
