sins – tanka suite

endowing the words
with too high new forged meanings
can become a sin…
and we pay for that each time
we sell them for hidden hopes…

we should bow our heads
for we were not given words
to play childishly…
a word ripped of its meaning
is one step away from love…

one word can bring hell,
just as one brings us heaven,
redemption needed…
in the end we just become
the words that touch our lifetime…
