I am addicted to words

The way they mold and shape thought
They bring meaning and understanding
Turn melody into song
Turn pictures into stories
They can change emotions and feeling
They can tear down or build up
Mighter that sword and gun
Longer lasting than time and sound
They linger int he heart and mind
They reflect the essense within
They mask the truth
The reveal the meaning
They are so changeable and encompasing
Contradicting and simplifying
Confusing and unifying

They have so much power

and yet

They are just words....
