Slides off my tongue,
rolls over my lips,
cooling, calming like water.

Jumps from my throat,
Slips through my teeth,
Burns, scorches like fire.

Streams on my voice,
Rushes with breath,
Flows, sweeps like wind.

Comes from within
In every form,
Touches the world.

We were discussing the power of words and language in my Comm. Arts class and I was inspired to write this.

I really liked to read this poem. It was beautifully written and you gracefully articulated what each word means.

Good Job!

Who owns my heart? Is it love or is it art?
--Miley Cyrus, "Who Owns My Heart"

I really like it.. There's something that I don't really like... And I can't seem to pick it out... Maybe it's just the pattern. But I love the use of words and the message comes across(:
