Socks honey make loud sick wallow okra

Jumbled milk Jeep jingle weeping castle

Eek dumb diner fabulous sanctuary oats

And

Spinning tantalize roasted coasters bleed

Orange peed renounce crush quietude

Gangsters blunder equality listening and

Relish hit man stoicism ranch hand kick

Stack rousing embellished sappy eluded

Another Way

Stepping up,

I listen

For your story.

I wait

For a sign

That you are ready

To go with me.

Cringing back

I feel the sting

Of your rejection.

Slowly, now,

I understand.

You don’t want

Another lover.

You just don’t want

To be alone.

So maybe there

Is hope for us

In the end.

Maybe we

Can make it work.

Another day,

Another way.
