Okay, so I realized something today…
And it wasn’t one of those “Eureka!” light bulb moments
It was more like the heating of a toaster
”Hmm, yeah that makes sense… Wait… Yeah.”
You want to know what I realized?
You don’t think the same way I think
or the same way he thinks
or she thinks
or your neighbor’s dog thinks
Shocking, I know.
Maybe that’s common knowledge,
but I don’t use that knowledge as often as I’d like
When I think, I really think
Every little detail of my world is analyzed
Should I have put that period after “Shocking, I know”?
No… Yes… No… Yes, because it adds to my tone
I’m sure I’ll read over this ten times before I hit ‘publish’
And once it’s final, it’s not final
I’ll change it five more times
Have I ever sent you a text?
That’s probably been edited a couple times too
…Back to my point
Just because every detail of my world has been thought out
And is there for a specific reason
Doesn’t mean your world is the same
When you mention that and not this
Reply later and not sooner
Say this and not that
Because maybe you just meant exactly what you said
