Words We Never Said

You never spoke a word,

But I heard words nonetheless.

Worthless

Unwanted

Useless

No Good

Unloved

Go Away

Go Away

GO AWAY!

And so I left.

And I never said a word.

But words you heard nonetheless.

Worthless

Unwanted

Useless

No Good

Unloved

Go Away

Go Away

GO AWAY!

Until, one day, you left.

If only we had said the words. . .

The real words left unsaid.

Precious

Wanted

Needed

Perfect

Loved

Stay

Stay

STAY

Good Times and Bad

“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life and said ‘I’m Here for you.’ And Proved it.”

Worse, The “Meet and Greet” from Hell

“Woodcut Social Media Icons” by arsgrafik

Everybody is continuously connected to everybody else on Twitter, on Facebook, on Instagram, on Reddit, e-mailing, texting, faster and faster, with the flood of information jeopardizing meaning. Everybody’s talking at once in a hypnotic, hyper din: the cocktail party from hell.
