Sweet talkers…

I never bet on pretty words.
Believe in half of what I hear.
What you say won’t move me, dear.
It’s what you do, so there.

Save the sugar for a cake.
Don’t sprinkle it,
don’t spill,
don’t waste.

The best things in this life are free.
I can’t afford sweet talkers.

While We Are Here…

We cannot be immortal.
So, let us be unearthly,
Other-wordly,
extraordinary;
With an air of sweet forever.

We cannot be immortal
So let us be exquisite.
Let us be ourselves
While we are here.
