Four Letter Words

by graypoet


So many four letter words we can use to remember those that cross our path, just put some together to clear my mind. Not a poem, just rambling in four letter words.
Some flattering, some not, and yet we can relate to so many as we sit and think:

Away – how many times have we wanted time, only to find they were not around
Baby – might be a term of endearment or it could refer to the way that are acting
Care – it is easy to care how someone is being treated or to want the best for them
Dear – a term for those that have touched our heart and can still make us smile
Evil – come on, we all have those that we’ve come across that make us scared

Fool – not the normal F word, but it can still bring an image of those gone bye
Gone – it might be that we wish they were still around, but then, it is what it is
Hurt – to imagine a smile or voice and have it bring back all that has transpired
Item – what we might have hoped to be with someone special, but it didn’t happen
Jerk – what you are probably referred to by that one, ok, maybe jugs is better to use
Kiss – a word that still brings so many emotions into play when you see their photo
Love – had your heart become involved or do you now hear them saying it to another
Mine – there must be some out there that can still remember on to refer to as this
Neck – at times, just the thought of that soft skin can cause hormones to rush… I digress
Open – to find someone that can relay their thoughts and dreams, so very special
Pass – some walk right on by, sometimes we peek too long, only to find shared pain
Quiz – we might think it isn’t important to ask questions, but the heart is treacherous
Real – always be real, it seems too many don’t want to be, at least have a real rack (necessary humor)
Slow – really, today so many think of love as a one night stand, take time to make sure
Tear – that drop on your cheek can be for many reasons, but we can hope it is from joy
Used – we all know someone that we felt did it, might have even been ugly, enough said
Vain – some things so much about them self they forget that someone else can care too
Wish – sometimes when thinking of another all we can do is wish them the best in life
Xray – wouldn’t it be nice if we could take an xray to see if they really have a heart
Yawn – if you are still reading this, you are probably feeling as alone as I am, sadly
Zero – they say One is the loneliest number, but being alone can make you feel like this
