What We Never Say

A common misconception I see people have today: 'What we want to tell the world, Is known through what we say." Alas, that is a farce. I know this to be true. Look instead for words unsaid And what they will not do. It is a simple thing To gaze into one's eyes, To lie ...

If I should dare to be so bold, I say: Have you ever met a man quite like him, Whose heart and mind was so gold or akin? Whose allure was strong and sure as the day? He, that whom you cannot resist his ways Whose tempting touch, though pure and such, is sin, With ...
