Please Don’t

Trifecta’s newest challenge:

MELT (transitive verb)

1:  to reduce from a solid to a liquid state usually by heat
2:  to cause to disappear or disperse

Nice words won’t melt me.

Neither will a smile.

Music, poetry,

Paintings will take a while.

Titanic? True stories?

They’re all pretty sad.

News reports

Have all that’s bad.

But what jars me,

Breaks me,

Moves –

No, shakes me,

Is the worst possibility –

A missing apostrophe.

“I love you!”

“Apparently the word entails different things to each of us.”

“Doesn’t all the time we’ve known each other mean anything to you?”

“I could ask you the same.”

“Just give me one last ch-”

“Get out of my house!”

“What if I refuse?”

“Go away. Please, just go away.”
