When Words Aren’t Enough

when words aren’t enough,
and thoughts don’t complete
what the heart wants,
will colors satisfy the need,
the need to yearn for more,
crave for more, long for more,
love more?

when words aren’t enough,
and thoughts don’t complete
I’d paint you, paint you
vibrant warm hues
of red, orange, yellow
colors of fire, of fall leaves,
of sunsets and sunrises

‘cos, baby believe me when I say
words aren’t enough,
and thoughts won’t complete
for you deserve so much more

  1. A beautiful, brilliant poem, SweetMich!
    It reminds me of quote I read years ago…”Sometimes what you need to do is forget what you feel and remember what you deserve.” 🙂
    How wonderful to express this to the people we love! 🙂 They do deserve THE best! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂


  2. Yes and yeas again! It isn’t just the words – it is the actions that precede and follow those words. And when the words can’t contain the emotion we must rely on actions of the heart!
