Throw away your Thesaurus

I have thrown away my Thesaurus
it did nothing for my perspicacity;
it was full of words
I couldn’t spell;
now better used to level
my badly built bookshelf.

So, if you mean “Love”,
say “Love”;
and never hide behind a song
you didn’t write;

If you love them
turn and tell them that
your love will never
see them cold
in the night.
