"Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself." Henry Miller


Words to be given
Promises you can't take back

They used to be so minor
So miniscule
But now they take such press

We say them
When we know we'll never let go

We say them fearfully
Because it's a risk you know....

The person the words are said to
Might never feel the same

That person speaking
Could be readying themselves to burn in their endless flame

They started with a match
The words they can't take back

Either the flame engulfs them
Or they live on breathing

A million feellings
These words can bring

Easy to say
But not easy to mean

And if such a risk is risked to early, too young,
What could it mean?

The dancing blue curves
Take light too easily

Both are at risk
Neither is safe

There is not a win win
Not in this game

The one way out
Not many can take

These words can enlighten
As much as bring hate
