Man of mystery

Sometimes she’ll catch him staring.
Often he’ll look away,
but once in a while he won’t.

When they speak
he doesn’t say much.
She can tell he’s holding back.

She’s beginning to wonder
if she scares him somehow,
or if she leaves him tongue-tied?

The fine art of containment

image

 

Life would be so much easier
if we all just put things
where they’re suposed to be.

So much time is wasted
looking for missing items which were
haphazardly strewn then forgotten.

Chaos does not exist
when one practices
the fine art of containment.

I’ve always lived by the phrase,
‘a place for everything
and everything in its place’.

I don’t like him

image

He’s loud.
He’s obnoxious.
He’s simply absurd.

He paces relentlessly
as if to attract
everyone’s attention.

He tosses his ‘military’ status
into almost every conversation.
He believes his ‘status’
exempts him from the rules.

His perception of entitlement
is disturbing.
He expects respect
without first being respectful.

His personality is unappealing.
I don’t like him.

Semantics

image

 

Words.
Twisted, mangled, complex.
I break them down.
I tear them apart.
I search for meaning.
I decode hidden gems
the average eye won’t see.

Words.
I love them.
They have great power
when used wisely.
They give great strength
when understood.

Words.
She said,
“I’ll see you in a minute!”
I assumed she meant,
I’ll see you in roughly 1 to 5 minutes
ten minutes tops!
She showed up an hour later. Wtf!

Words.
He said,
“See you later…”
I assumed he meant,
See you later on today or
some time in the next 24 hours.
I saw him, 3 days later. Bummer!

Words.
Do you know
the power of your words?
Do you stand by your words?
Do you understand
how your words affect others?

Words.
Think about the things you say.
Don’t just use words
because you think
it’s what someone wants to hear.
Think before you speak
or don’t say anything at all.
