Hi there! I know people of both the types mentioned in this poem – I’ll let those who know me figure out who they might be 😉
(I’m joking, you’re all lovely).
I hope you all enjoy the poem, let me know if you can relate!
Isn’t it funny how
Can so dramatically change your mood
With a simple “hello”?
And a stifled sigh exhaled
Through pursed lips
And a false brightness,
An unseen clenched fist
And words spoken with a more than necessary
Amount of teeth;
Or, on the shiny side
Of that self-same coin,
How that single,
Can be the spark that lights a candle flame
There was nothing more
And passing by.
