Words

"Hi, how are you?

feeling a little blue.."

what do I say?

to words on the screen..

Thoughts & emotions are hidden

words and meanings are lost.

Sitting here trying to not make a scene..

as I read the words on the screen.

But what of those words,

that rock my world,

that cause me grief & pain?

Where do they come?

from someone

Who took me and made me smile.

But they're just words on a screen..

what do they mean?

are they for real or do they just seem,

to be something more

than just words on a screen.
