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 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
