Captive Words

Set us free, say the words
But you are, wandering freely
within me
flowing into the heart
nestling in the mind
invading corners
shrouded in darkness
teasing the soul
out of its inertia

Powerful words
awakening sleeping desires
questioning old beliefs
impelling new thoughts
to take place of those
that no longer hold true

Ah, say the words
free though we are
within you
we long to escape your confines
So cast off the shackles
shake off the doubts
We will gain more power
if you let us march
boldly out of your pen
