The Written Word

The written word bleeds a brazen ballad, worthy of pen and paper.

The written word plays the heartfelt melody, of our God-given savior.

The written word, stamped, sealed, then sent, sends a message, to read, not hear.

The written word received, then read, stimulates a sense of touch, to tears.

The written word, once pen-pressed, is stored, to re-read the essence, of a friend.

The written word remains a touch, to press the page, a friend used, to press their pen.
