Where do words go
When I write them
And send them
Into the void?


Where they go
When I speak them?
Do they touch you
With my accent
Or voice?

I have only words,
Poor, poor words
While you dabble
In colourful scarfs;

Tell me,
I want to know,

I need to reach
Your heart.


I want to know
Where words go
On evenings
When you tell me
My eyes are green
,

Am I an MS
In a bejewelled bottle

Mired
In the Sargasso Sea?

Do I bear words of love
And torment,

Or wrapped in weeds
call without heed?

Am I stranded,
In shallows forever,

Haunted
By pale ghosts of need?
