"but those who matter, don't mind"
I don’t do eloquent;
I do raw and real
Straight to the point
no unnecessary pontification
because what is the point
of speaking only to be misunderstood
I don’t do riddles;
I do reasons and requests
When I talk I want to communicate,
not complicate or confuse
I am an open book
straight to the point
rip the band-aid off
healing only comes when we are opened and exposed to air
is both curse and conviction
Sometimes eloquence is needed
but those who matter, don’t mind
those who mind, don’t matter
but then again, sometimes they do
Honey drips from my tongue
apologies and assuages
How do I make my words both blunt & beautiful?
