Words Fail Me

                                          Words Fail Me  

Always.

How do you tell someone, “We have different sensibilities”? 

(Without causing pain?)

How do you tell an acquaintance, “You’re pretentious”? 

(Without sounding pretentious?)

How do you tell a neighbor, “You’re presuming too much ”?

(Without sounding unkind?) 

How do you tell a relative, “You’ve misinterpreted the situation”?

(Without sounding insensitive?)

How do you tell an ex-lover, “You never got me”?

(Without sounding angry?)

How do you tell yourself, “You’re ok the way you are”?

(Without sounding smug?)

No words.
