Too Candid

Sometimes, I’m too candid.

Sometimes I am too candid.
It’s possible, in fact
That I’ve made a four-letter word
Of what one could call “tact”

But sometimes the direct way
Seems best for what’s at hand;
When hints and subtle signals
Aren’t going well as planned

Like when another driver
Might cut across my path
I’m questioning their parentage
With my one finger math

So if I’m blunt to you, just know
It makes for better chat:
I’d try to tell a lie, but then
I’m not that good
At that

A Reconsideration

It was time to leave the beach…

I sat down by the waterside
And said, “I’m gonna leave this place.
I’m tired of these small town games;
The sleepy fishing village pace.”

And then I saw you on the beach
Beside the clear blue-emerald sea;
The only thought then in my mind?
That there’s no better place
To be

8. Rumours

The wind is whispering to me you have found someone else.

Rumours.

Always false.

Always true.

7. Argument

I had an argument with my heart early this morning, but none of us could slam the door.

We share the same one.

6. For My Best Friend

I haven’t told you everything about how I feel.

But you could feel everything I haven’t told.

You are my everything.
