Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

but lately the words

but lately the words

 

But lately, the words don’t seem to say much,

a reflection of emptiness inside.

Should silence ever be allowed to speak?

Would I comprehend what it tried to say?

 

A reflection of emptiness inside,

I avoid the questions and the answers.

Would I comprehend what they tried to say,

even if I could face my mirrored soul?

 

I avoid the questions and the answers,

disassociating from all my fears,

even if I could face my mirrored soul

I dare not own either shadows or light.

 

Disassociating from all my fears

I’m left to wonder what I have to say.

I dare not own either shadows or light

yet if I’m caught between two worlds I must.

 

I’m left to wonder what I have to say

should silence ever be allowed to speak.

If I am caught between two worlds it must,

but lately the words don’t seem to say much.
