Nothing too deep, just playing around with a certain word in my head, and the thought struck me.

The Composition of Words

Clanking of pipes,
Vocal chords, anyway.
And a word washed down the drain.

And in a sound,
An echo can live.
Lost forever, obsessed with,
The voice of a sound.

If words dwell in radiance,
The blush of a sunrise,
And the flush of a sunset.
An echo lives in a shadow.
On a cold cement bed,
Urban chilled life.
Tormented by it’s timid voice,
Withdrawing into itself.

In a different world,
Syllables would be fundamental.
The shape of a sound is dependent,
On the beat of the word.
Something sensual,
In the rolling of the tongue.
The angles of a jaw dropping,
And the curve of a word.

  Much to do about nothing.

  I like this, especially the last part. It's important to think about this as a writer but not too much imo. Sometimes you just gotta let words flow out, let emotions, not analytical thought, gather behind them and push them forward.
