Mere Words

The words that used to ruffle your world,
the days when my thoughts made you desirous,
burning that heart while it yearned for me

Are now scattered on your barren canvas, lurching to touch your soul,
but the hearts have changed,
our world doesn’t converge anymore
and the verses that elated you in the past
are now nothing but a mere set of words
staring in oblivion with diminishing hope
