Empty Words

Posted on: 23 February 2007

I will
… you won’t
I’ll do it
… you don’t
I’m here for you
… so untrue

I promise…
I promise you…
I promise you I’ll…

Empty words
That roll so easily off your tongue
When we both know
No thought
No feeling
No truth in any one of them
The same refrain

Why say anything
When at each vow
You stumble and fall
Better… stay silent
Say nothing at all

Great poem as always. I like how you take the empty words and make the truth stand out.

Love you my friend.
