don’t read my mind

No! don’t read my mind
like you’re reading some sign

Hey! don’t decipher
the tapping of my nervous finger

What! don’t tell me you heard
that telltale whispered word

Stop! it’s not that simple
i’m not like most people

Ah! you think it’s an art?
now, try reading my heart.


  1. I LOVE THIS!! Dapat i-print ko sa T-shirt. πŸ™‚ Yes, one of my pet peeves is when people peg me to be this or that kind of person just for one or two things they noticed about me. God made us unique and complicated. That makes friendship an adventure. Cheers!

    created to be exquisitely complex and yet the creator understands us fully and loves us completely πŸ˜‰ sillyserious


  2. nice poem! It’s so simple and yet it also warns me not to take it for granted…that there is something deeper to the poem and to the poet.

    context clues! haha! so that’s what you were trying to glean during lunch today! clever. sillyserious


  3. like saying, ‘don’t judge me by what you see and by what you heard from me. I am more complicated than that’

    ooops. possibly a wrong interpretation. I should not read your mind.

    i should not read your mind

    hehe… nice one, lazarus πŸ˜‰ i think ur summary represents what most people think this little verse is about. interesting πŸ™‚ sillyserious


  4. You’re into verse as well?! Wow, I am properly and irreversibly impressed. Is there anything you can’t do, Alex? I’ve always visited your site through beng’s or gypsy’s and never got to find out your url. So I finally wrote it down and came here directly for the first time. Success!

    ate grace! thanks for dropping by πŸ™‚ u are an encouragement. i’m an awkward verse writer (i dare not say poet!) it is fun to dothough, especially when prose does not quite nail my sentiments πŸ™‚ keep writing and blogging! sillyserious


  5. hmmm… i have, for many times, tried to read your mind. many times i read you right, and in some? well… πŸ˜‰ [it’s good to be wrong sometimes. hehe]

    so what do i think? πŸ˜€ there’s more to this post than being “complicated”. right, kuya ruben? πŸ˜€ and if i want to know all about it, promise, i won’t try to read your mind. πŸ˜‰ it’s a lot easier to ask! πŸ˜€

    sooo… what is it REALLY about? hehehe πŸ˜‰

    i invoke my right to remain silent and my right against self-incrimination… hehe. sillyserious
