Reminder: Words are Just Words
I am poisoning myself with forgotten phrases,
I swallow them convinced they will make me happy,
And yet I find myself here again,
Casting coins into empty wells,
And wishing on idle stars,
The brightest of them being you.
I try again to forget your beautifully constructed phrases,
That sit rotting upon my golden pedestals.
I remind myself they are just words,
But blessed they be to pass your lips and grace my ear
