The words are fading...

The words are fading for me,
the power in them, the emotions husked in those,
the words of love, and the words of abhor.  

The words that I now say,
are not so buoyant, not so irate
, and nevertheless so grey.  
No longer they are poignant, no longer they so glee
, and just as bland as they can flee.

Have I lost an expression,
or do I comprehend silence?
