The weight of words This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Words have a heavy weight
Their skin thick and slimy
I sometimes
wonder
if I would drift away
without the weight of words
They keep my feet planted here,
my brain down to earth
So would I just
float away
without the weight of words?
If words can murder
and crush
and kill
but mend
and fix
Would I just drift away
without them near?
