Rhetorical

Sincere sentiments built in well-chosen apt words
Foundation reinforced with vowels and consonants
Illusions supported by illusory sounds
No strain on the heart just the vocal chords

(Meaningless actions that can be undone
Outweighed by syllables you cannot reverse)

Blindfolded by the reckless desire to trust
I’m caught in the web of lies honest words have spun

Clouds of the past raining down on me I’s and L’s and U’s
Wasteful rhetoric setting traps for the callow heart
Shunning eloquence, yearning for simplicity of silence
I seek refuge furtively from all your spoken truths
