Escaping Definitions

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Words should not offend,
Or become twisted to bend
Like a flower blooming,
Without a stem
To uphold its nourishment.
Words can be defined...
Unlike feelings
Different from yours,
Or that of mine.
When spoken...
We should find out what words mean.
How they are used.
When they are used.
And who refuses...
To take them for what they are.
Instead of insisting,
Something else was meant!

'What in 'hell' are you talking about? '

Escaping definitions!

You're doing a damn good job...
Because I haven't a clue
What you're talking about! '

That's two of us!
At least we agree.
And you thought we had nothing in common!
