Words can create more distance between two people than the miles that may separate them. They also have the power to alter space and time~eradicating both, or build a wall where one is needed.
How we wield them depends largely on where we’re standing and what we had to make it through to do so.
We hide ourselves behind them, reveal ourselves with them, create boundaries to protect ourselves, reach out to draw someone home…
Sometimes, all at once.
It’s a Paradox.
