Don’t Try to Read What’s Not Written (revisited)

I laugh hard and loud,

But that does not mean I like crass.

I am comfortable in my skin

Don’t try to make me feel guilty.

I smile often and spontaneously,

But it is not inviting.

I speak my mind very often

I can’t help you find my candour intimidating.

I look at you directly when I talk,

It does not say, ” Come hither”.

If I go out for lunch with you,

It is that; just a meal together.

An invitation for drinks,

Should end at just that.

If I accept your compliment graciously,

I am taking it at face value.

You too do that.

Life is too complicated.

Don’t complicate it further,

By reading meaning

Where there is none.

I am tired of games,

Let’s play it straight for a while.

  1. I would have missed this verse had I not had a revisit. Reading what is not written happens since writer and reader do not have similar experiences when writing and reading!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
