How is it words get misconstrued?
Get all mixed up and unglued?
With good intentions, they’re said,
Yet somehow, they are totally misread.
Before you know it, the conversation goes south,
And there’s a foot in your mouth.
I guess language really is an art,
Especially when speaking from the heart.
How can words get twisted with such ease?
Can someone tell me, please?
Words can be taken all so wrong,
Even if their length isn’t that long.
To avoid miscommunication at its peak,
Would it be better if we didn’t at all speak?
