Just making it up as I go along

Post by koan »

As promises flow from empty lips

I watch the time go by.

So many years have passed since I

Have felt the urge to try.

So many people I have loved

And they have loved me too

But somehow it was not enough

So discord always grew.

I've always thought that, in the end

No matter what I do

The answer would reveal itself

as what I always knew

There is someone beyond the door

Waiting there for me

And when I'm bold enough to try

I'll open it and see.



I know. Not a very good title. But, on second thought, it kind of fits.

Another cool piece by the Garden's queen of poetry. Coan, in this poem, its like you are trying to reveal to the reader an aspect of you that's best understood by you.
A formula for tact: "Be brief politely, be aggressive smilingly, be emphatic pleasantly, be positive diplomatically, be right graciously".
