She Was Blunt

Posted: August 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

She was blunt to the point of inelegance
he was too highly strung for high society
all those darts and potshots
always a strain to come away unscathed.

High wire act and a far way to fall on your face
such a disgrace please don’t shame me
I just wanted to have a good time
does that make me a fraud?

I’ll admit to cowardice but my intentions were good
if anything I was too earnest
I had a picture in my mind of how it’s supposed to be
but the artist does not control the subject.

The creation you evoke can go terribly wrong
the meaning you intend falls on deaf ears
the understanding you assumed has made you an ass
blunted bludgeoned and far from bedazzled.
