Dead Words

 Dead Words 

There was just nothing left but truthful ashes
in this smoldering fire that's trying to go out


Trapped in his loneliness to bitter cold
looking for words that must shout


Endless words are thoughts that explain
trying to tell their lover of their pain


Read in between the poetic lines
 of a love poem that he sent


Then you will understand his love sorrow
that he just have had to somehow vent


Teardrops stained the parchment paper
as he bowed his troubled head


Trying to write another love letter
before all the words were dead

all words serve a meaning in life, from our first to our last.   often love words hurt us harder than most because we take them so personal.  your poem shows how these words get into our hearts and effect us to keep writing.   my first poem I've read here.

This is IMO a most poignant poem, it reaches into the very essence of a lonely person man or woman  and pulls the anguish forth for all to see Well done I applaud you a good poet always chooses their words cafefull y and this you have done--- again!

This piece reached right into my heart. The lines

Endless words are thoughts that explain
trying to tell their lover of their pain

reached right in and grabbed a hold. All who write to help ease the pain of unreturnd or lost love will be able to relate to this write. The emotion in the write is palpable.
