Hollow Words

How can one
decipher hollow words
when –
no substance can be found
and only echoes heard
truths…. of resonating sounds
which float away
like hot breath
in the windy chill….
of despair.
Dull verses
which hold a heart….
at bay –
as even all the lies
begin to cringe
at the sour taste
of foreign words
where certainties – fade.
Where are…..
the spoken words
of truth –
if not in the honesty
of eyes –
where one soul reaches out
and the other……
holds the trust –
a confessional
which now confides.
