The Trailing Words

Location

Here is a word, or maybe some more

I guarantee, simple is bold

 

We see the unseen

And feel the signals

The signals of heart

 

But there are choices

Choices to be made

Choices to be heard of

And portrayed

 

Like endless seas

Touched to be held

Touched to belong

 

Drawn to the core

The core of life

Of redemption

 

So soon will the sparks be held tight?

The lights are daunting

They are melting in words

 

Too many words to count

So filled with lustful heartbeats

It’s an emotional country, at most  

 

Where do these come from?

From voices, of course

Simple melodies inside the soul

Directing the inner chambers of it all

 

Cry to be perfect

Smile to be loved

Stay vivid to be home

I guarantee, simple is bold

 

There is a trail of words

Blossomed from the surface

From no notice, at all

Craving to fit

To be unashamed

 

But there are choices

Choices to be made

To free the forgotten

And reuse the reused
