The Words

girlfriends, friendship, hug-2213259.jpg

At times we all need someone,

Sometimes not even that.

A thing that understands us:

A plant, a car, a cat.

We might feel we need words

Of comfort or of wit,

A reassuring chinwag

When our worlds seem full of shit.

We’re striving for connection,

The Words sometimes don’t matter.

We might not know the reason

Why we’re yearning for a natter.

Words are seldom everything,

Some words come out by chance.

Sometimes more is spoken

By a single sideways glance.

What matters is to find it,

That feeling of connection.

It doesn’t need good grammar,

Diction, accent or inflection.

The Words can say a lot,

But some can leave us in a muddle.

Sometimes we could say so much more

By just offering a cuddle.
