Words can split one into two,
they hurt more when they are true.
Words can alter what ears hear,
they expose deep inner fears.
Words can break to then unite,
they posses great unseen might.
Words can slip off careless tongues,
they pull knots that where once hung.
Words can spray a thought that sting,
they carry with unknown strings.
Words can change relationships,
they linger within closed lips.
Words can hold secrets so tight,
they may be dark but shine bright.
Words can dare to take a chance,
twirl to take hearts for a dance.
