WORD

a poem by Laila Chris, Brazil


WORDS ARE STROKES ON CANVAS

ARE NOTES IN MUSIC

ARE SHAPES IN OBJECTS

ARE BLOOD IN PEOPLE



WORDS CAN BE SHARP

AS SHARP AS RAZORS

CUT DEEPER THAN A FAST STAB

AND A STABBED SKIN IS A MIND FILLED WITH TRUE THOUGHTS

WRITTEN THOUGHTS RHIMING ON A CHEAP BAR NAPKIN

NAPKIN PLACED ON A DIRTY MAN'S LAP



WORDS CAN BE POWERFUL

AND PAINFUL TOO

CAN HIT HARDER THAN A PUNCH

FISTED PUNCH OF DRUNK WANDERERS



WORDS CAN KILL

CAN MURDER LOVERS AT DAWN

CAN HURT AS BAD AS DEADLY SHOT GUNS

ALL BECAUSE OF THE EVIL THAT LIES IN EVERYONE

AND IT IS KEPT INSIDE

THAT EVIL THOUGHT WHICH CAN'T BE HIDDEN

CAN'T BE DISGUISED



WORDS CAN BE SPIT

CAN BE SAID AS IT WOULD WEIGH TONS

OFFEND THE SPINAL CHORD OF A PURE LISTENER

WORDS ARE MEANT TO DESTROY

WHEN ONLY USED THAT WAY...
