Sometimes, all the words in the world mean nothing.
At others, a few say more than should be uttered.
Sometimes, a million syllables are but empty.
At others, four are enough to kill you.

    actually three words would be enough to destroy me. “I’m leaving you.”

    or these two…”she died.”

    this piece of yurs really got me to thinking. …and talking, too…lol 🙂

      Thank you for your comment… Although life is unpredictable, I hope you never hear those three/two words. 🙂

    “Sometimes,” my husband-to-be promised me in a very early email, “Reality is more wonderful than any dream.” He was right! Thanks for ‘Like’ing my poem, Oh Cairo xoxoxo
