These Words

Regina Puckett

I chisel at them as if they were make out of stone

I bow before them as if they’re seated upon a throne

The words, the words find me wherever I try to hide

And no matter how hard I try to keep them buried deep inside

They burst forward and demand I put them onto the page

Their tears, their anger, their love, their pain and their inner rage

Ink runs through their veins and the paper protects their heart

These words that do their best to pick my life and soul apart
