I need more words
Not big or fancy ones
To make me feel important
Or long and boring ones
To make me look smart

No, I just need more words
Simple ones that speak a truth
A little meaning within the sound
No hidden implications
So that I have more to use

There are things that need saying
But their concept goes beyond
The language I have learned
There aren't words great or beautiful enough
To let me speak how I wish

I need more words
In order to speak directly
A painter cannot paint
Without his colors
Me, I can only find my black and white

Stay metal!

Ah! Too many words my xit and yet not enough then you must write your poetry with your soul from your hearts blood. :)

I love this piece, I'm so crap at writing like this. It is always harder to compress than expand.
