A Word is Dead


“A word is dead

When it is said,

Some say.

I say it just

Begins to live

That day.”


― Emily Dickinson





to no-one

heard by someone

words that mean something





written or spoken

language a beautiful thing

souls communicate




I had a thought

the idea had words

I remember naught

thinking is for the birds


no need to be distraught

just keep on trying to opine

no tears for what we forgot

dead words on a line


this lyric is the best I could allow

eventually this moment will pass

how important was it anyhow

was I expecting only first class


expressions live on when they echo the truth

laughter is the most positive language

happiness is the fountain of youth

a big vocabulary gives one an advantage


even the coin has two sides

too bad  the point was missed

the news comes and goes with the tides

dead or alive the word still exist


ME and the Boss
