The Power of Words

Oratory makes power
The power of words
An eloquence of speech
Combined with fluency of ideas
Charisma confounds rhetoric
Or expands it
into a force for good or ill
Oratory moves mountains
Moves the masses
There is a power to words
Declamatory speeches
laced with anaphora
Sing to the soul
Words written on the page
Erudite compelling full of truisms
Words of power but which rendition
The eloquence of oration or
the seductiveness of written word?
Which wields the greatest power?
Or is all equal with the power of words?

Trophy in the sky

Searching looking for something new
My whole being divided in two
Emotional and physical needs kept apart
Hard to do it wrenches the heart

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Deciding the straight or crooked path
Has to be the latter with a laugh
Starting off with tempting situations
Giving and receiving sexy invitations

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Stirs the hormones wakes the senses
But its fantasy there are fences
Emotional and physical needs kept apart
In order not to break the heart

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Dizzy dancing thoughts alit
Swooning surreal intoxicated skit
The players acting like you and me
Unable to be completely free

Touch my mind move within
Share our lives like breeze on skin
Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky

Friends with benefits changes yet
To just friends another set
Sharing life more in the round
But less important newer ground

Knowing in my heart as time goes by
Just another trophy in the sky
