The words that are simplest
And easiest to understand
Are the most powerful:
I love you,
I want to be with you always,
You're the best thing that ever happened to me.
My heart flows like a river,
Spilling its emotions into a sea
In which the truth moves unseen,
Swimming with silent grace,
Too monstrous for light or land.
The truth feeds on words,
The most powerful words,
The words that are simplest
And easiest to understand.
