Unnecessary Drama | Poem | Linda J Wolff

I will not pretend to

be happy with you

if I’m not happy

with you when you’ve

insulted me.

I will be civil,

hold my tongue,

and wait until

you’ve realized

you have put your

foot in your mouth

and you apologize.

Because there’s a

difference between being

aware of unnecessary drama

and the silence of

positive necessary drama.

Silence is heavier

and more impactful

than words at times.

And it’s amazing how fast

you realized what

you’ve said was hurtful.
