words & air

that’s what you say
you feel like
a never ending
card game

play and play
and play
never really knowing
who would’ve won
at the end of the day

you say you love me
you say you care

to me
it just feels like
words and air

show me more
play in my curls
scratch my head

put some action behind
all those things you’ve said.

do you like to string me along?
tighten up the leash
when you need me
and then let me
wander far.

you said you loved me
you said you cared
but to me it was just
words and air

ultimately leaving me
in despair
