Piece the Puzzle

How do you piece together

a puzzle of a conversation?

Keep the topic as light as a feather

be careful, be patient.

Caution, beware

of the impression of coming off

too much like you care:

a laugh, a smirk, a sigh, a scoff.

Never let the other know

the words that are teeming

fighting to become the seeds you sow

in a relationship that is seeming...


to be the one you were waiting for.
