We Had No Idea

If you share everything with us
in the spring, keep a running
crawl of your life’s news on display,
then we’ll quickly find you tiring.
Sorry, but that’s the God-est truth.
Better to tuck away some negatives of intrigue
in an old shoe box and pull them out
in later autumns and point and ask
Have I ever told you about this?
We’ll exclaim
What?! You’ve got to be kidding! We had no idea!
And we will honestly hate we didn’t know.
And we will secretly love you even deeper.

    God bless you for being so kind to the dumbasses that (attempt to )tell us about their hemoroids on facebook- wish i were as kind.

    “And we will secretly love you even deeper.”

    The God-honest truth of what we’re all hoping for.

    Oh, John… Thank you for helping the oversharer in me learn how to be loved even more. 🙂

    Discretion is the better part of valor. I heard that somewhere.

    The mysteries of human nature.
    We all are so conflicted.
    And funny.
