Words

Words tingling beneath my skin.
Draw sweat and tears
From deep within
That send me reeling
Into cold dark night
Blinding words burning bright
Words that rip and rend
Word on word that never end
Words that speak of love and rage
That bleed onto the waiting page
Words that wound and cure
Words reviled or pure
Used with bright or dark intent
From pit of hell or heaven sent
Words to illuminate or blind
Words to sunder or to bind
Words used in whole or in part
To win a love or break a heart
Words that  break a mind or bend a will
Words woven with a poets skill.
