Floating in and out of words

Transcending time never out of words
Out of mind words carry me to and fro
between different uni-verses I grow
Words correspond
words transport me to another place
words fall, likitty –split,
from my lips heating your ears like whips
words channel though me
Tick Tock - time stalks me
Pendulum swings from thought to thought
Clock chimes consider moments bought and unused,
borrowed and blue
Words force me through closed doors
Unknown scary places words chase me plague me
Follow me taunt me chastise me
For dear life I hold on to words
Words ...
Searching through lost words
discovering new words to turn over and lose
An entire day spent turning words around
searching for misplaced words find my soul in words
Words play over and over in my mind
Words keep me prisoner for days in a row
Words mime me chide me imbibe me find me
Impossible to hide from words no matter where I go
Words reside in my brain jumping cell to cell
Analyzing and attributing meanings to words
Words play no way to escape
words  are here to stay
Words locked in and outside my brain
Closing the gate after words escape
once spoken can never be taken back
Words build escalate exacerbate
Words build hierarchy policy describe trap and abuse
words cause wars to be fought
words create space and places
People forgetting their place return to a private base
words trap me enslave me cause wounds to open
Never out of words in the woods because of words
Honest words offend old wounds mend
Words start race riots expose the caste system alive here just like India
Words create reality
Words keep me alive no time to rest till death inhales my words rest on paper like smoke crumbling in time how long do you suppose my words will survive suspended on internet sites in people memory ram words live on internet
Words are the beginning the end and beginning
And the word is …
