your words have power

your words have power.
they stain your lips,
dripping off.

i feel wrong reading them now
because before they were simply
your craft. but now,
each syllable, carefully formed,
is blatantly obvious.

they are written, but not heard
or read by the one you intended to reach,
but i hang off every word.
but it is not my eyes,
ears, by which your words
seek to be seen
or heard.

your words have power.
my eyes drink them in,
and pour them out in cascading falls.

your words have power.
