What does it mean?

Your words dazzle then fizzle
as they hit the floor,
for they are just that,
words, nothing more.

No actions
to bring them to life,
just empty consonants,
and sentences that rhyme.  

Vowels and silables,
strung together cleverly,
to amuse, to tease,
to show off creativity.  

To conjure emotion;
to mess with the mind;
to elicit some action;
to hook like fish on a line.

A lost fairytale wrapped up
in a cute bow,  given as a gift
to those who don’t care
or even want to know.

So what’s the point
of such coy renditions?
To give air to some sort of
highfoluton sophistication?

To elevate? To chastise?
To encapsulate a thought ?
Or perhaps quite simply
an outlet for wrath?

The things we say
should have some meaning,
not just empty words that hit the floor
as if thrown from the ceiling.

What do your words mean?

Crystal Clear

If you tell me I’m special
Then place me in a box
With all your ordinary things,
It means I’m not special at all.
When actions and words are not in sync,
The truth becomes crystal clear.
