Those Words

Those Words 

Those words so piercing and moving
They crawled into your heart and mind
Brought back days sad and loving
Befuddled your present, time so unkind

Those words stayed in you like stimulants
You sat there immobilized, vanquished
Finally when sanity returned
Past become past, present no longer cherish

Those words spoken can be unkind
Those words spoken can be lies
Just tell me you will be fine
Seeing unspoken words in your eyes

Oh, those words I should have said 
They got stuck in my heart
Oh, my reticence left you mad
And slowly we drifted apart

Those words you long to hear
Words of consciousness and mind
Believe in trust and you will see clear
Lasting trust like trust of mine

Those words can eat you up
Make you lost in your heart 
In time you will find what it is like
Those words bring empty days and nights
