A desperate hearts words

A desperate heart’s words

Abandoned and floating


Like falling leaves delicately embraced

And suddenly carried away

On a warm summer breeze


Whirling and drifting

With confusing excitement

Torturous expectations

And blissful discourse


Playfully escaping their meaningless desires

And emotional emptiness


Enjoying the turbulent caress of the breeze

But not wanting to believe

Its promise of warmth and commitment


For these words were only to be spoken

And never heard
