Empty words

Why do you give so much importance to words, oh beloved?

Words are empty, empty carcasses

Words are meaningless

Can words define a friendship?

Can words measure up to the infinity of love?

Can words distinguish the truth from the falsehood?

Can words explain God?

Can words bring back the past or shape the future?

No, no, no

Words are worthless when the dark ink on paper is crystallized into a universal truth, into irremovable facts

Words are a tool, an instrument

They are not an end in themselves

They are a mean

they bear colors, sounds, meanings, scents

Words fulfill their purpose once they are used to mirror truth and love

Once they are used as metaphors

Suggesting without saying

Showing without imposing


If I tell you I love you

If I reassure you about my feelings with words

Will it help you truly

Would these words I send you be a true expression of love

No, they wouldn’t

They would only mirror the emptiness you feel within

Find your wholeness within yourself

And I will find mine within myself

And once we both are in perfect balance

We won’t need anymore to tell one another about our love

for each of our act, each of our word, will be a mirror of love

and we will feel this truth within our heart

  1. Words hold the value we give them. An insult hurts only because we give it the quality of being hurtful! A rose by any other name smells as sweet 🙂 Words help us understand the world that surrounds us however we have morphed words into something else. A weapon.

  2. Indeed acts speak louder than words. Acts are words in themselves. But a purer more palpable form. More tangible.

  5. Tu as aussi dit ça il y a peut de temps:
    L’importance des mots

    Some words stem from the place is us

    where truth and love exist together

    They are precious


    These words should be appreciated


    thought upon


    Words are not a cheap commodity

    to use and abuse of

    many of the words we speak and write are weaklings

    and they’re unable to bring true solace

    just temporary relief

    and they don’t bear within them the meaning they carry

    You’ve taught me a lot about these strong words

    that light your mind and warm your heart even many years after they’ve been spoken

    these words are true and exist outside the frame of time and space

    While I agree with what you have said here, I want to point out that sometimes it’s not about the words one speaks. Sometimes it’s about the actual intent to do so and the follow through. The act of wanting to speak. A lot of times for me, that desire to speak to me and the action showing that desire is what is needed to clarify doubt that silence brings.
