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.
