Edinburgh, Scotland

Words in excess are a facade
creating emptiness and silencing true meaning

Words that are empty are expressive yet unfulfilled
Hiding true meaning that only a touch or gesture could truly convey

Words in excess are the mortar holding bricks in the wall
That creates loneliness and isolation
Diminishing hope with a stockade
That can only be tumbled by heartfelt gesture
