Empty Gestures



Empty Gestures never mean anything, they are just actions never meant to be followed up. We have all faced empty gestures in life, haven't we?

These are poems about empty gestures that I wrote as I was thinking what empty gestures are all about.

empty gestures


actions without any meaning



a shake of your head



meaning



a yes for a no



o


no for a yes



empty gestures



only lies


uttered in the spur of the moment


not a grain of truth in them


**********



Plain Empty

Empty Gestures


not saying what they mean


not meaning what they say

empty gestures


always never mean anything


just a shake of your head


a wave of your hand


nothing there to understand

empty gestures


never stay


meaningless


they all fade away
