Words

 
Words whisper
Caress
Taunt
 
Monopolise
Anger
Hurt
 
Tantalise
Inspire 
Heal
 
Misrepresent
Suppress
Lie

Words can never be as powerful as emotion.
And yet emotions need a name to unleash their  power.

    1. I am well, Grace. I have been very busy, thus unable to write poetry for sometime. But thankfully, Brian's response and Sherry's email drew me out from vicious cycle.

  10. So true Ninot...words do carry a certain power, not like emotions, yet we need them to explain the feelings. Love this!
