The Definition of our Actions

He told her he loved her,
Saw the smile and relief
Spread across her face
As he sat there casually,
Not understanding that
A word like that is truly
Until our actions that define it

She reciprocated the gesture,
Because her entire world
Was the man in front of her.

As he fooled around with others,
While she bragged to her friends
About the perfect relationship she
Is in

Throwing more weightless words
At her,
Letting his actions contradict
Their definitions

And it won’t be until the truth is revealed
And her heart will shatter
That she will truly understand
How sometimes, words don’t have a
Until we let our actions
Define them
