Words vs Actions

Words vs Actions

A Poem by Pale Rose

Words mean nothing
Actions or patterns?
Distance is troubling
Dangling above the cliff
The ground is somewhere
Even with closed eyes
And your turned cheek

Words mean nothing
Now, action! let go
Break the heavenly limb
Silence is better
Kissing the ground

Words mean nothing
On fire or cold
In air or with body
At bottom or top
Loud or silent

Words mean nothing
When we speak of love
Or when we fall.
