The Words I Need


Dave Frazier

Oh sweet words, why do you run from me?

To evade my embrace your only concern.

Can't you see I need your comfort?

The comfort of your sweet whispers?

The page stares blankly, begging for my pen,

Wanting and awaiting, expecting,

That I paint my picture upon it.

Its whiteness blinds my eyes from thought.

Sweet words - why do you torment;

To stay at the very edges of my thought?

I need you now, to tell my tale.

Without you, my page remains so distant.
