You have to mean it

cold with no feeling
words with no weight
repeated, repeated
still empty and forced

her heart was beating
steady and calm
no catching of breath
or tremble of soul

in spite of the promise
she wasn’t
not inspired or touched
nor joyful or sad

he’d made the words
for her
but he didn’t mean them
and she knew it
