Check Out Of The World’s Hotel With Me: Romantic ImproVerse Freestyle Poem

December 28, 2012

If you take words/
and thoughts,
and ideas,
and feelings
that the world speaks
and thinks,
and apply them
to what I say,
I can see
how my words
could be misconstrued.
I can see
how you could misunderstand
my intent.
I can see
that I could not be
the type of man
you would want
to be around.

Please understand that,
I forget to live
in the world.
Sometimes, I forget
the way the world is
and what they say
and what they think
and what they feel
and the ideas they have.

Please understand that,
in my naïveté,
I say things
from my heart
that mean,
to me,
something very different
than what the world’s
would mean.

Please believe
my sincerity,
my honesty,
and my good intent.
When you think
that I am saying
what the world says,
take a moment,
and think of how different I am
than the world.
Then you’ll hear
what I say,
and know
what I mean.
