Where the words lie


On the other side
Of that great wide Arch
Lie all the words
Piled together sky high
A veritable treasure trove
Of all the nouns, verbs
Adjectives you use
To bare your soul
Your thoughts and emotions
Some true, some fiction
Some imply, others infer
Questions and answers
To everything you ever wanted
So how do you get past
The great wide Arch
Across the invisible seams
That separate the two worlds
Like Rowling’s archway, the Veil
Transparent black curtains
Separate the words
With the unread
For if you don’t read
You won’t get the words
But if you don’t have the words
How do you read?
Simple, with a rope
Tie one word to another
Form a chain and pass it through
The Veil that stops you
Hook it to the mountain you seek
And slowly entice
You get one, the others follow
Like a hungry but scared
Badgered roadside animal
Used to a harsh life
The words, come
Scared of misuse
Of inflicting pain and misery
Of breaking bonds
Razor sharp, their ends
At the end of the day
Why get the blame
For being the perpetrator
When at fault here
Is the Mastermind
