ROCK – PAPER – SCISSORS

black and white tattoo female arm

So, you honestly think you can read her like a book

as you flip through the pages of her paperback novel.

You think that this is telling and her words correct,

and you think you know her well … know her well, perhaps?

Rock – Paper – Scissors

Words can be emotive and hearts can be hard,

where once they were candy floss, soft and pink.

Her cheeks may blush, though talk conceals the truth,

and you think you know her well … know her well, perhaps?

Rock – Paper – Scissors.

 With her feisty character but cotton wool charm,

her thoughts can be wicked, almost vile.

Her morals can be spurious, her tongue can be sharp

and you think you know her well … know her well, perhaps?

Rock – Paper – Scissors.

Her speech is impeccable and her lips softly smiling.

Her skin white as snow and innocence prevails.

Her eyes reflect the stars … but oh, the cache of lies,

and you think you know her well … know her well, perhaps?

Rock – Paper – Scissors

  1. I agree with Manyofus1980. I think most of us spend a lot of our time making guesses about other people, what they are like, what their motivations are, how they are feeling, what they are thinking. That’s something we have to do as a social species. There are limits, though. Even with my family members, although I usually feel I know everything about them, occasionally they’ll say something or react in a way that makes me wonder if in reality I barely know them at all.

    1. Thanks, Bun. I guess none of us ever know all of the inner workings and thoughts of another’s mind but then sometimes I wonder whether that individual completely knows the workings of their own mind themselves sometimes.

      I know – that I think I know ‘me’, but then I even surprise myself sometimes! x

      1. Yes, I wonder about that sometimes too. I often feel like I’m a passenger inside myself and am not always fully aware of the reasons behind certain of my actions or attitudes. 🙂
