Just Words

Do you ever notice the way

That, in the moment, words are powerful

They seem like the most important thing

But, repeated, day in and day out

They lose their meaning

And are not so compelling

They do not hurt so much

Nor make you as happy

They do not make such an impact

Like saying your name in the mirror

Over and over again

They begin to seem silly

Almost ridiculous

And rather dramatic

In the wake of new words

This process becomes redundant

After a while

For what are words that are nonsense

Other than nonsense

And madness

And crazy

They become dull

To feeling

Dull to emotion

Dull to meaning

Dull to definition

Dull to anything

They are just words.

The End
