When I say what I mean is



when I say I’m cold, what I mean is you’re warm
when I say I’m  itchy, what I mean is scratch my back

when I say you’re mean. what I mean is I’m hurt
when I say you’re a nerd, what I mean is you’re smart

when I say I love you, what I mean is I love you. 

know what I love about you?
when I say what I don’t mean,
you always know what I mean.

    verbal and non-verbal communication is the key to a successful relationship, along with trust. An engaging write, and much to ponder. :)
