What if all of this was nothing at all? What if it was less substantial than one of those dreams you leave behind on your morning pillow when you step out of that bedroom to face the day?
After all, this is only words, mere marks on the screen, scratches on paper and movements in the air. They do not amount to that much, easily ignored.
You can turn off the computer, close the book or just walk away, leaving the words to fade into nothingness.
Think of all those words we have ever spoken and how many of them really mattered. The silences when the words are left unspoken are often more eloquent, more meaningful than a whole jugful of words poured into the ear that does not want to listen.
Although, words too can be the poison dripped into the ear of the sleeping king that brings about the downfall of the entire kingdom. Words can tell a jealous husband about his wife’s handkerchief and words can promise kingdoms around cauldrons and tell of great loves that will last all through time.
Words can creep and words can crawl into the mind and stay there for the rest of your life.
