Words (poem)

Everybody has words way down deep inside
Everybody has words that sometimes can’t hide
Everybody has words expressed in the fluid grace of dance
Gliding, leap, soar the words twisting them into chance
Everybody has words in the lilting notes of a song
A gentle hum or belted tune free the words so strong
Everybody has words in a pen through which the hearts ink flows
Line after line it all pours out into novel, letter, and prose
Everybody has words desperate to come out, waiting behind shadowed eyes
A blink, a tear, a stolen glance turn the words into truth or lies
Everybody has words, quiet, sheltered, and deep
Words that no one will ever hear and no one will ever see
Everybody has words . . .
