Was it the room full of words
I was lost within
Where you first spied me,
Between the sonnets and the free verse?
I spin yarns of fairies
And many tales of fancy.
Your tender approach so apprehensive
Thinking my words contained substance.
But it was just me being me
Pretentious at times, erudite even
Playing with words and random ideas.
When you spoke I took notice
Turning my gaze from within
And looking out saw compassion.
You reach out to so many
I stand in awe;
You have an audience who needs you
Whilst I write for any idle mind.
But when your words flow my way
I listen, spellbound.
I am addicted to you
As each day, your words melt my heart.

The words has a power to bond… for those who love them
Lovely as always.
Thank you, enjoy your weekend when it comes your way..
As long as you can assure me it will be good.
So far so good…but one always has one’s fingers crossed just in case…
I shall remember that.
I liked these lines: “When you spoke I took notice
Turning my gaze from within” Nice criteria getting someone to turn the gaze from within.
Thank you Frank..
