Words

Twenty six letters and an infinite number of words. Yet sometimes all you really need is one. Words can be tricky. Saying them is one thing, saying them and meaning them is another. Promises unbroken, lies untold. Crossing the line when you should have known better. Playful memories on your tongue. Wrong words rhyming.

Keeping your mouth shut and smiling. But somehow words still ooze out. Loose brain synapses. Damn. Knowing something but keeping it to yourself. After all, ignorance is bliss. Or so everyone thinks. Some words are better left unsaid. Some words sound better in your head. Leave them there. Trust me.

Because sometimes you just have to stop talking, even before you begin, even before words refuse to come out. Sometimes, in moments like these, words are unnecessary.

And yet, sometimes, the one word you really need is right there in front of you. So grab it. Say it. And mean it.

Now that wasn't so hard, was it?
