Regular Poem: Saying Things, Hearing Things

13 Apr

“They’re jealous because you’re cute,”
she said.
Of course she would.

Some people
say things to say things
or to manipulate
to scam
to mock
to accuse
thoughtless heartless fruitless.

And then there are the people
who say things to edify
to lift up
to strengthen
to bolster
selfless guileless.

It’s probably not true, what she said.
But she wouldn’t have said it
if she hadn’t have thought it

She says
all kinds of things like that–
those things she believes and I
wish she were right about.
She says
all kinds of things,
and I always hear
her love.

    I love this: “I always hear her love.” It made me a little weepy.

      I couldn’t ask for a better middle-aged-lady friend to write sappy poems about or a better blog friend to appreciate them. 😍

        Now you’re getting me teary-eyed again, for pete sake.

        If you really want to get teary-eyed, consider this: I named a character in my vampire novel after you. 😘
