Would you trade words for numbers? Well, maybe to earn a living. Both are necessary and useful, but oh, the many talents of a word, when combined with other words. Numbers can't speak of love, or entertain, can't comfort the hurting or inspire the downtrodden. I will take words any time.
Oh, and do you know that Jesus is called the Word? The reason: He is the expression of God. Beautiful!
Your poem is inriguing and thought-provoking.

This is so imaginative, and quite romantic.

Is it just the same with words?
When rejected, by them are you hurt?
Or do you shrug and soldier on,
With some other kind of work?
I think I do get hurt when words fail me. I hope it's not because I might be getting forgetful. What?

"When concrete is the king of kings,
And abstraction is a curse,
Where 2 plus 2 is four all day
Utensils when what you really want is gold (Poetry) - 1/26/2011 6:56:10 PM
"That thing... and never once again." You just created a kind of "Gift of the Magi" in my head... a side-story in those two lines... for the reader to get lost in.
That was a neat trick and a good way to end a poem.

What an insightful poem, and enjoyable to read!
Mom's and the awful selfishness of teenagers (Poetry) - 1/18/2011 6:09:36 PM
It truly was a sad day for your mother, James, but she would be blessed to know that you are a wiser man now. It takes years before we begin to know the feelings of our parents, if ever.
I suggest that you also confess it to God and ask His forgiveness. Jesus' death and resurrection made a way for our sin to be forgiven forever. When we recognize that, and acknowledge our sinfulness, we can come to Him and be freely forgiven.

James, in just a few well-chosen lines, you capture
the horror in all its wrenching pain. -gene.
