Tied to Words

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Music Prompt #43: “Someday We’ll Linger” by Gaelynn Lea

 

We live on earth as humble bards

All scribbled lines and wine glass shards

Leaving bitter taste, tattoos and scars

 

Of long-lost poems we used to write

The ones that kept us up all night

That never seemed to turn out right

 

We’re tied to words

We’re tied to words

 

Raindrops from a recent shower

Release a scent that gives us power

To write the beauty of a flower

 

We’re tied to words

We’re tied to words

 

We ponder on the morning glow

Metaphors of orange and yellow

Rolling down like lava flow

 

We’re tied to words

We’re tied to words

 

We live on earth as humble bards

All scribbled lines and wine glass shards

Someday we know we’ll touch the stars

 

We’re tied to words

We’re tied to words
