Land of the Word

This has been a long time coming,

this deluge, this sea of words—

I was silent for so long, you see,

silent and absent and not feeling

overmuch of anything

til you

this storm has been brewing for years

while I was alone and unloved

and now all has changed

now I am alive and vibrant

and I am home again in this brain cave

I have come home again to the Land of the Word

and it is you who led me here
