That's HAWT!


Kind words
like an antidote
to all that is ill

In one moment
I am lifted
soaring, because
of you

With one look
I am giddy,
pain forgotten,
because of you

Just one laugh
and everything is perfect,
because of you

Kind words
like an antidote
to all that is ill

This is great! I agree with you completely, and I think you did an amazing job of getting the message through. Good job! :)

This is nice! It's very precise and concise which I like about it. It just seems very clean and to the point--no dancing around the subject.

I love it. It's so true that a kind word can make everything better. There is one thing I would change, however. In the 2nd verse, last 2 lines you said "soaring,because/of you". It might be better to say "soaring/because of you". It fits the pattern you set with the 3rd and 4th verses. :)
