#WednesdayVerses : Words are all I have

words are all I have

The chain of thoughts in my head,
Sometimes do not find a voice.
Some things are better left unsaid,
Leaving me with no choice.
But I can’t keep them within,
I’ve to let it all out.
In words I find solace,
Words are all I have.


In poetry I often seek comfort,
Both in happiness and in sorrow.
For there’s a feeling of satisfaction,
When I let the words pour.
I put out a bit of me,
In every word I write.
Judge me for it or love me,
But words are all I have.


In troubled times, I can offer,
A hand to hold, a shoulder to lean on.
But there will be times when I can’t be there,
When all I can offer will be words of comfort.
With every word I write,
I hope that I made something right.
Riches of the world or superpowers I have none,
Words are all I have.


Will you then love me,
For who I am?
With all the broken pieces of me,
That I string into lines of poetry.
I’ll give all the love I can,
I’ll be there with my words even when I’m gone.
There’s nothing more that I’ve to offer,
Words are all I have.




As a part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Vinay and I have started this weekly prompt which we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt. We are happy to have you rhyme with us.

Prompt #11 is “Words

It is World Poetry Day today! Happy World Poetry Day. Let’s celebrate it with more poems.

    How beautiful. Sometimes words are all we have. And it’s true that each time we put out a bit of writing we’re putting out a little of ourselves.
