Words have all kinds of effects…
they linger,haunt,stay,dance,glide,slip,feed,satiate,fill,empty,touch,move,bring smiles…isn’t language the most important thing,without it how would we convey how we felt,how would we express and how would we read and write poetry…
this poem here is about what words of a special someone can do to a person…
I hope you like and I hope you can relate to this…
so please use words,say more,listen more,write more and read more,definitely read mine more…heehee

Your words the things you say
make me stop in my steps
hit me again out of nowhere
make me stop in my steps
leave me out of breath
make me stop in my steps
burn a hole in my chest
make me stop in my steps
hear them on repeat in my head
I am again…stopped in my steps
like your breath on my neck…….
