Words
In words
In sweet words
Are but sounds
Although sounds
Are only shapes
And in the shapes
Is a picture
But the picture is blurred
But in the blur
Is the sky
And under the sky
Is you
Pale and perfect
And you are alone
But you are life
And in life
There is joy and sadness

But you
Pale and perfect
May not be alone
For in your eye
Is a tear
And in your tear
There is sadness
And sadness is a part of life
And in life
Short but sweet
There is you
And above you
Is the sky
Beautiful and enduring
And above the sky
Are the stars
And from here
The stars are just a blur
And the blur
Is a part of a picture
And the picture
Is made of shapes
And shapes
Are in sounds
And sounds
Are just words

This poem is great! I love how it comes full circle. Your style is excellent. Good use of enjambment. Check out my poem "Sitting Pretty".
