Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

not everything is a line

not everything is a line


Why are compliments heard as lines?

Can’t someone say you’re beautiful

without hidden meanings sometimes?

Not everyone is truthful,

but neither does everyone lie.


Maybe you wouldn’t believe me,

because you don’t believe it’s true,

about yourself I mean, but see

if someone else compliments you

they might just mean it honestly.


So, gorgeous hair, beautiful eyes,

I do not mean when men get crude,

but why should I ever disguise

what I like without being rude?

Just once, I’d like to be surprised.
