If Words Could Be Tasted

Mon, 01/20/2014 - 10:42 -- ilanag3


If words could be tasted

Would idiot be sour?

Would oppress be foul?

Would morbid be bitter?

Would smack be acidic?


Or would finesse be like honey?

And beautiful be warm?

Would comfort be nectarous?

And would smile be flavorsome?


But what if we got

Rid of those words

That made people cry,

Bruise, and be bruised.
