Words cannot describe
The way I feel inside
Words cannot describe
The world I see outside

Words are labels
They’re mostly illusion
What your reading now
Is just a well rhymed delusion

How can “Love” really explain
The way that you make me feel?
Do those four letters really make
These feelings any more real?

As a poet I’m crippled
By the very words I write
For even the word “Lightbulb”
Can’t help you to see the light.
