What does it mean?

image

 

Your words dazzle then fizzle
as they hit the floor,
for they are just that,
words, nothing more.

No actions
to bring them to life,
just empty consonants,
and sentences that rhyme.  

Vowels and silables,
strung together cleverly,
to amuse, to tease,
to show off creativity.  

To conjure emotion;
to mess with the mind;
to elicit some action;
to hook like fish on a line.

A lost fairytale wrapped up
in a cute bow,  given as a gift
to those who don’t care
or even want to know.

So what’s the point
of such coy renditions?
To give air to some sort of
highfoluton sophistication?

To elevate? To chastise?
To encapsulate a thought ?
Or perhaps quite simply
an outlet for wrath?

The things we say
should have some meaning,
not just empty words that hit the floor
as if thrown from the ceiling.

What do your words mean?

My Uber Valentine

image

 

Uber driver:
So how will you be spending valentine’s day?

Me:
Let’s just skip on ahead to St Patrick’s Day shall we?

Uber Driver:
Well I was gonna mess with you,  but I see you’re ‘seasoned’ so I’ll stay in my lane n take my game elsewhere.

Me:
Yes. Good idea!

We both laughted.

The conversation was pleasantly fun afterward. No ‘game’. No expectations. Just interesting discourse. As a matter of fact,  we arrived at my destination and I thought we still had another 5 mins of drive to go. I’m a suckered for good conversation. Oh well, can you blame me? ☺

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Have a great day.

Thanks Uber.🌷

Music is Oxygen, Poetry

Ladies, love your guy.

Ladies, if the guy in your life does
things no one else does,
or at least tries,
be sure to let him know
how much you appreciate his efforts.
Don’t nitpick, it’s a turn off!

Even if his efforts
are not to your standards,
show appreciation anyways.
Remember,
everyone wants to feel rewarded
for their efforts, even you.
Be fair, treat him as you
would want to be treated.

Ladies,  please communicate!
Tell your guy what’s on your mind.
Do not expect him
to read your thoughts,
men just think differently,
they don’t need a hint,
they need you to be clear
about what you want.
Life would be ten times easier
if you just speak up.

If he no longer treats you
like the star of his universe,
then maybe he feels his efforts
aren’t being appreciated.
And if you still choose
to take him for granted,
soon enough he will just stop trying.
Then don’t be surprised
if he gives his love and time
to someone else
who truly appreciates him.

Be his cheerleader,
be his support,
cherish his secrets,
comfort his soul,
nurture his creativity,
love him like no other
and hopefully,
he will love you just the same.

Poetry

Crystal Clear

If you tell me I’m special
Then place me in a box
With all your ordinary things,
It means I’m not special at all.
When actions and words are not in sync,
The truth becomes crystal clear.
