Empty Words

Staring each other in the eye
We have come to point of saying goodbye
Words have lost their sting
The passion within them is gone
Within them no power remains
Everything you could say has been heard
Nothing you can do could change this fact
She doesn't want you back
Grey Goose won't dull this pain
Hanging with the fellas won't help you forget what you let slip away
Prayers won't bring her back
Stop trying
If you knew her worth you would have been home
Blowing up her phone
Sending texts with hearts and smiley faces
Always reminding her that you care
Kissing her goodnight
Setting football aside for one night
Paying attention to her needs
Instead you worried about yourself
Leaving her alone at night
Never knowing the tears she cried
Staring each other in the face
Knowing we are about to go our separate ways
Love and all we had faded away
Nothing could you to stay
Words have become air with sounds
