Empty Words

As a master with words,
It is my expert opinion,   †
You are an idiot with yours. † †
† †
Fumbling around, †  
Thoughts †barely connect. † †
Do you hear yourself when you speak? † †
Nothing makes any sense. † †
Do you believe these fables? † †
† †
Without truth, lifeless  
Barren words spoken by a heartless human being  

Words owe sincerity, † †
driven by respectful motives, † †
To express feelings, foster understanding, generate open communication. † †
Yours aim to illicit reactions, stir emotions, exploit vulnerabilities.  
Weapons of control, to sway, persuade, and demand your desires and needs be met. † †
† †
Words require conviction. †  
Say what you mean, † †
mean what you say. †  
Your words are constantly changing, † †
a roller coaster of confusion and contradiction. † †
† †
Words carry responsibility, † †  
requiring implementation. † †
Without actions, † †
Itís merely manipulation. †  
†† †  
Authenticity obliges synchronicity of words and actions. †  
Yours are never in alignment. †  
Two parallels lines, † †
never destined to meet. † †
† †
Lacking all of these, † †
your words are rendered: † †
Ineffective † †
Worthless †  
Petty † †
Vain †  
Void † †
Cheap † †
Futile † †
† †  
Now, mark my words, † †
there is no truth to the †delusions and lies you weave. † †
† †
Understand, thereís a fine line between love and hate. † †
When it comes to you, † †
†I dance across it † †
More than Iíd like to admit. † †
† †
But that dividing line widens, † †
the more you open your mouth. †  
Keep it up, †
With your empty words and meaningless apologies, †
A canyon is forming. † †
† †
Donít expect me to bridge the gap. †  
Youíre building me a house on hate, †  
back facing love, †  
Boarded windows, † †
Pad locks, †  
Love unwelcome. †  
But that isnít me... †  
† †
Do yourself a favor, † †
Just stop talking. † †
Walk away, †  
balls in tact. † †
Accept defeat, † †  
Maintain a bit of dignity. † †
† †
As for your words? †  
Well... they can plummet to the bottom of the abyss.. I have no use for them. † †
Save your breath. † †
Knowing you, youíre already feeding Ďem to the next ones. † †
Think of it as one less mouth to feed

I donít think he will ever stop. I know better than to react and give him the attention he is desperately seeking. So...I write...
