My Words by Lavita Saikia

Weaving my dreams into a blanket of words,
I find solace emptying my heart,
My words too suppressed and too silent,
Otherwise in this gloomy world!

Sitting in my spot, observing the world,
Lips quivering to utter a word,
Letters flow like the notes in music,
Adorned with a string of mellifluous sounds!

I heard we write for we cannot speak,
Our words are weak to burst out of our lips,
But our stories and letters are tough and brutal,
Sometimes soothing, sometimes abstruse!

I love this glorious world in my mind, 
Filled with an irresistible thirst for love,
To share what I know and how I feel,
Through these elegant wonderful strokes of my words!
