Not Enough Anymore

Not Enough Anymore

Words can be quite lovely, quite magical and enticing.

They can be like the wings of a butterfly and shine like a million stars in the sky,

Or they can be like sweet honey in your mouth and for a moment so sweet to the taste,

Especially those three words “I love you”.

However, without concrete gestures, and acts it’s all they are, momentary magic,

And then the magic wears off and you realize, with a sad heart,

Words are not enough anymore.
