Language

For all its worth, language fails
I'll run off a cliff, hoping to fly
and when the words don't catch
I plummet downwards

  1. it's always a bit of a risk and an adventure when we throw ourselves out there... sometimes they catch last minute...

  2. True... many times the words cannot prevent us from that fall.. and the fall might be high.

  3. hope the rocks are not too sharp at the bottom

    it is the risk we take

    either that our words are insufficient
    or that others not care enough to read them

  4. To fail brings you one step closer to success. So every fail is a step forward. >KB

  5. And yet, were we not to take the plunge, we would never know ourselves I think--lovely piece!

  6. There's always that risk in writing isn't it ~ Falling and no words or hands to catch us or our words ~

  7. Yes, it does feel like falling when we take a chance, leaping into the unknown...

  8. Oh. We need more than words to string that parachute. But I am willing to take the risk, I think.

  9. So honest and sincere. The unknown of words connect us all.

    Beautiful! :)

  11. Words can be that powerful to counter logic! Great humor Charleen, in a little piece!

  12. When we don't communicate - it is such a let-down.
