“The challenge: write a poem consisting entirely of things you’d like to say, but never would… ” Now that’s pretty tough, because I’m committed to honesty, which includes saying what I want to say. Maybe I’ll make some things up, and you can guess who I’m saying them to:
Who said that?
I can take uniformed, ignorant, or incapable.
Get off. Find your own transportation.
Dismount that high-horse of yours.
Watch out for rain, you just might drown.
I love you just the way you are?
Good Lord! I just scared myself. I do believe “someone got inside my skin today.” (borrowed sentiment from Shel Silverstein.)
