You may act like you don’t care

With words or just a stare

Or the way you laugh

Or shake your head

Yet better still

You may show you care

By a kiss delivered quite

By accident

By words you speak

When otherwise they should not have been

And it’s fine if these words or actions

That you choose to use

Are the ones you find to suit you best

At that time

In that situation

And that’s fine with me

For we all have our ways and means

So please, my dear,

Please know that this,

These words, these letters,

This verse, that verse,

These lines and lines,

This poetry, this way I write

Is the way that suits me best.
