Love In Words

Naive little things, words,
yet so effective when strung together
breathing romance
and fading loneliness

between the lines
with words in pastel strokes
joined in just the right way.

A writer's thoughts
whether fact or fiction
become another's hopes,
and the words find their way
to a reader's heart as surely
as petals dropped in a forest
mark the way home again.

I love you's bloom, only to fade
by truths revealed in even more words.

Can we fall in love through poetry?
I believe we can,
through the pure naivete of words.

I second that... I'm sure Shakespeare said something similar: 'matching the thought to the word, the word to the deed, and withal, two hearts to each other kinned..'
