One Thousand Words - A Poem

The rhymes are not perfect, but I don't care too much.

Even if it’s torn down the middle
Pulled apart to shreds
A picture’s worth a thousand words
Or so you always said

I was told I could string together words
And use them to paint something beautiful
But my pallet started to dry out
And my eloquence became juvenile

My words were scattered, blown away
Leaving me a picture I couldn’t paint
I tried to find the right words again
But by the time I did, it was too late

I fear I will make the same mistake
I swear to myself I won’t
You’ve already gone down that path
I can’t even beg you “Please don’t.”

It’s too late to take your hand
And I’m left standing here broken
I can’t paint you something perfect anymore
One thousand words go unspoken


  1. Oh Thalia, I'm so sorry for what's happened. I'd love to give a big inspirational pep talk but I'm always depressed so.. xD

  2. *hugs Gepard*

    Thanks for reading my poem.

    It's OK. I'm OK. :D <-------- Seee? Happy Thalia.

    (even though I did write this poem while I was upset, it is a bit metaphorical)

  3. Wow

    I can feel the pain through the words, it's AMAZING

    And it's OK. Like I said, I am OK. I'm getting better with each passing moment. Soon it'll just be a distant memory :D
