Empty words

Contributed by Apollonia on Tuesday, 26th November 2019 @ 02:44:52 PM in AEST
Topic: EmotionalPoetry

Empty words laid out beautifully
Before my eyes their mouths made peculiar shapes
Forming words of emptiness
Around my anxious body
These words were disposed
About me
About my anxious body
Oh how beautiful
Oh how sweet
Oh what a woman
Talk talk talk
Itís nothing but peculiar shaped waves
Do they even know what pain is
Can they feel their heartbeat
Beating to the rhythm of emptiness
Lay your eyes upon me
Fire burning with excitement
Empty touch, empty feels
Would you know how to love
Entangled around me
Sharp silky ropes
Glowing like blood
White sheets, white lies
Jingle dangle
You canít handle
Empty sorrow, empty hope
Fill my heart with untold truth
Never ending story
Thatís what I heard
How magical it could be
If empty words were filled with truth

//Peculiar shaped waves// ... I love that.
Talk is so cheap and devoid of meaning when actions donít match. Yet those //words// .. give us hope or bring us to our knees. Such a mighty sword.

You wrote this showing great emotion and with a pain that can be felt.
Those last two lines are especially gut wrenching.

Well done on this. Good to see a new post from you.

the ugly, how in someways
it would be easy to make
a true friend, someone
you would like to talk with
the body, this facade
comes with its own
appreciated look, this
half arranged natural
state, beauty can
be a curse
It can be a strange
disposition, a big lie,
especially for those
who are superficial.
I know a lot of pretty
girls who are shy
because they only
want to be invisible

those who judge how
someone looks
miss the point about
their own lives

people should not
be like that, it is
such a gigantic waste
of time
Great poem - something
true to think about everyday!

Emotional poetry is an apt category for what you have laid bare for all to see here.
I felt that emotion, I felt the pain and the anguish strewn across the page.
Great write, very powerful

Wow from the mouth of God.
No human could have written this.
In awe of you.
