54 – Words

Translated from my head
To a page in front of me
Words often feel like the
Only things I can control

When I can’t say the right…
When nothing comes out
Quite how I meant it and…
Words on a page calm me

I am their relentless zoo keeper
Wrangling them into style
They’re like family to me
In the weird non-family way

When the pictures in my head
Won’t come out willingly
Words have an uncanny way
Of coaxing them right along
