You really aren’t as clever as you think
Or maybe you just underestimate me
I did indeed read between the lines
Your message not so hidden after all
Or maybe that was the point
If so, why did you need me to know?
If not to relay your message to its intended recipient
Do you think it paints you in a better light than had you communicated it yourself?
Or maybe, just maybe you didn’t expect me to see the deeper meaning behind it all
Be careful now. . . your slip is showing

Great poem. You slide into things so beautifully.
lol…I like the transition and while reading I could not sense where this was leading, so I had to continue to read. this was really an enjoyable read. Thanks
