Say What You Mean
by Amy Niggel
I'm tired of cloak and dagger
I'm sick of intrigue
I want honesty
I want emotion
I want passion
I don't want a code breaker to figure out how you feel
I'm not good at hiding from you
I wear my heart on my sleeve
I just want to know
what do you want?
just for once answer a question
just for once trust me with the truth
plain simple truth
just for once say what you mean
Author's Note: More emotion than form in this one I fear but I wanted to say it so I did.

to me, emotion is more important than form in a poem. anyway, it's better for you when form doesn't prevent you from saying what you need to say.
