Nice

Maybe it’s true…

The best way to be nice now
is to be mean

The most reassuring phone call
is a quick, hollow voicemail
The warmest touch to offer
is the cold shoulder
The best meeting to have
is none at all

Because
When we share the details of our days
When you lightly touch my arm
When we linger over a shared meal

I can’t or don’t hear the words you’re saying,
(no)
My heart hears what it wants to hear
(yes)

Being nice

Misleads
Confuses
Hurts

….and that’s just mean

When the phone doesn’t ring,

I’ll try to remember that it’s you

not calling,

it’s you being

nice
