Straight Talk

Have you ever tried

Assembling a metaphor

Out of what you really feel?

Of course you have.

But I mean,

Have you ever struggled

Keeping it not too abstract

Because you know you're not good enough

To get the message across

Without a little straight talk?

It's like, where do we strike the balance

Between being literal

And being cute,

Or whatever the hell you call it

When you use a word like "flatulence"

Instead of "fart?"

And where do I start,

And how far do I take

Symbolizing my broken heart

Into a jigsaw puzzle, with pieces scattered

Or some shit?

Like if it wouldn't be enough

To just spare the chatter and say,

"This bitch sucked another guy's dick!"
