When words have lost their meaning


when words have lost their meaning

 remaining shells with nothing more

 their letters with no goal,  just tired, pale and leaning

against the doorpost like some old forgotten whore

then poetry is dead and gone

and language lost its purpose all together

nothing to revive it can be done

no words are saved, no single useful letter

no meaning to the sentences  is real

if you don’t read my words, the ones I’ve written

you never know just how I bleed and feel

could language only be a messenger of love

sent with the wings of some eternal dove

My acceptance poem :

so many words are written fast
so many said, not all are heard
but there may be a few that last
like ‘love’ as the most perfect word

I nominate Jamie Dedes!
