Crave

Words are inadequate
Yet I crave them.
I want them to caress
My ears
My heart
My soul
To linger in my mind
And tickle my emotions.

Words are like wine
But more intoxicating.
I’m addicted to them
Their beauty
Their simplicity
Their intricacy
The way they dance in my head
And twirl on my feelings.

love how you personified the words here.  the imagery and emotions are sound and fit in with the poem.  but the theme of the poem is hard to grasp, but its deep and i like it;) short poems are hard to write, you did good:) keep writing!
