Just Words

These are only
words from
my lovely mind
influenced by
so many people
places and things
just my words
in print
in lead
on paper
where they
deserve to be
even online
on your screen

Just words
only my words
in black
and white
in print
in lead
on paper
obsolete
on screens
everywhere
take a
deep breath
I’m thanking
you all
I’m hugging
you now

Sometimes a
photo or 
digital image
sometimes
just words
but they 
are mine
and I’m 
putting them
down for
everyone’s sake
painful 
and so direct
sometimes 
over the top

Just words
only my words
in black
and white
in print
in lead
on paper
obsolete
on screens
everywhere
take a
deep breath
I’m thanking
you all
I’m hugging
you now

I know
if I write 
from my heart
you will see
the proof
on your screens
that I am
writing 
as the words
flow through
my fingertips
from my 
blank mind
between my
novel and books
Thanks everyone
from the
bottom of 
my heart
I appreciate 
each one who
has followed
or liked
I wrote 
this for you
in response
