With Words

with words we cursed
feigned laughter
then ducked

with words we whispered
touched lips
then fucked

with words we transgressed
improvised apologies
then smirked

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?

How does this theme appeal to you?

You know I would laugh at this one it is so neat,
but I think that some of the parts could have taken longer, lol

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Some situations just beg for words- and you give them. In neat quantity. It's like a whole week with a brand new woman/man: awkward, then not, hot, then comfortable.

Thanks for that :)


I have actually pondered over additional stanzas but I always came back to these core bits.

Oh words are indeed one of lives untapped apparatuses.

I was going for three examples of how words lead to, and get us out of situations.

In ink,
