opposites

we say yes when we mean no
we say no thanks when we wanna go
we say I’m fine when we aren’t okay
we say I’m busy when we wanna play
we say How are you? when it really doesn’t matter
we say You look great! when you’ve gotten fatter
we say That’s so interesting when really it isn’t
or Keep in touch! but prefer the distance

humans are the most curious beings
nothing is ever what it seems
why can’t we just say what we really mean?

-E.E.
